On March 29, 2022, the EPA announced that the use of Enlist One and Enlist Duo, two Corteva Agriscience herbicides used for the control of weeds in conventional and genetically modified corn, cotton, and soybean crops was expanded to an additional 134 counties for the 2022 growing season.

Crop residues are stalks, straw, leaves and other plant material that are left on the land after the crops have been harvested. Although it is impossible to put a dollar amount on the value of crop residues, unless residues are baled and sold, their benefits for the success of crop production are numerous. With harvest in progress, it is timely for producers to make decisions about how to effectively utilize crop residues.

Private pesticide applicator training to obtain or renew a pesticide license is a reality for many area producers every three years. With the disruptions due to COVID-19, those applicators who were given an extension last year, expire this year, or are seeking a license for the first time will have some different options to explore along with the traditional in-person training option.

    As you may remember, on June 3, 2020 the United States Court of Appeal for the Ninth Circuit Court issued a ruling that vacated registration for three dicamba products namely, XtendiMax, FeXapan, and Engenia, primarily used for Dicamba-resistant soybean.
