Registration is open for the 2018 Crop Management Conferences. These regional conferences provide a forum for discussion and interaction between participants and university researchers. We are looking forward to introducing new specialists from the University of Illinois, and have adjoining state specialists joining us at Mt. Vernon and Malta. We will also be offering dicamba training at the conclusion of each conference.

2018 topics include:

In early October 2017, the EPA approved revised labels for Xtendimax, FeXapan, and Engenia. In addition to being classified as restricted use pesticides, the labels now require applicators to attend an annual dicamba or group 4 herbicide-specific training prior to using the products. At 4 pm at each Crop Management location, a 60-minute “Dicamba Training for Illinois” provided by industry educators will be available. This training will meet the new educational requirements.
