Engenia® herbicide, a BASF product, has been re-registered with a requirement of annual dicamba training for all applicators. BASF will offer this training at several Minnesota locations in late January and early February.
This course is currently only available on site, in person. Online training is not offered. Go to the Minnesota Crop Production Retailers events calendar to register for one of the public BASF-sponsored dicamba training sessions. (Bayer-sponsored dicamba training sessions are also listed on the link.)
Craig Gustafson, Federated’s director of agronomy operations, noted that any customers who plan on using Engenia need to take this course before they can purchase (from Federated) and apply dicamba on Xtend® soybeans. Proof of this training will be required at the point of sale.
