Pesticide training and plant sale coming up
By Morgan Watts
Rowan Cooperative Extension
On March 2, the Rowan County Cooperative Extension Center will host an Auxin training from 9-10:30 a.m.
The training will be at the Agriculture Center, 2727 Old Concord Road.
The EPA recently revised labels for dicamba products registered for application to Xtend soybean and XtendFlex cotton. One of many new requirements is mandatory training for all applicators prior to use in 2018. Even if you attended the training in 2017 you still need to attend one of the trainings in 2018.
You can visit the site listed below to see all of the training locations in case you can’t make it to the one in Rowan. There will be 1.5 hours of recertification pesticide credit in categories N, O, D and X. If you plan to attend, please RSVP by calling 704-216-8970. http://www.ncagr.gov/SPCAP/pesticides/auxin.htm
