Nebraska Extension in Jefferson County

Local Interest

In October 2017, the Environmental Protection Agency required that soybean and cotton dicamba products (currently XtendiMax™, FeXapan™, and Engenia™) be classified as Restricted Use Pesticides (RUPs).  This change requires anyone purchasing and using these products to be a licensed certified applicator whether for private, commercial, or non‐commercial application. There was also a requirement by EPA for additional training on dicamba use for these three products. This is a special training which is different from the normal local, agronomy and restricted use pesticide certification meetings.
