Online Dicamba Training

Information released by the North Dakota Department of Agriculture

Apr. 19, 2018

For immediate release

Online dicamba-specific training available

BISMARCK, N.D – Online dicamba training is now available through BASF, Monsanto and DuPont.

In October, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released their new label language classifying the new formulations as restricted-use products, meaning that they may only be applied by a certified pesticide applicator.

“Online training is available to those individuals who may be hired by a commercial applicator or start employment with a farm this spring and will be applying product to fields,” Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring said. “The training will benefit applicators by teaching them the techniques to use the technology properly so that these products will be available for future use.”

This technology requires strict attention to detail and adherence to label requirements that many users may not be familiar with. For those applicators who were unable to attend an in-person training, online training is now available.

Applicators only need to complete one registrant training to be able to apply any of the three products. The products are Engenia by BASF; XtendiMax by Monsanto; and FeXapan by DuPont.
