OREGON, Mo — The EPA approved new herbicide labeling as of October of 2017  and has major changes. Please study the labels on the Missouri Department of Ag website for the Federal label and 24c label, which is Missouri specific.

Growers and certified applicators who will be applying the product will be required to have a private pesticide applicator license. Each person applying the product will be required to have the license rather than working under a growers license.

Also, private applicator licenses from other states than Missouri are not acceptable. The private pesticide applicator license must be a Missouri license.

Secondly, auxin herbicide training which is the new training requirements including dicamba are required. This training can be accessed on-line through the Missouri Department of Ag website or the University of Missouri Extension website and searching for “Synthetic Auxin Herbicide Applicator Training Program”
