Illinois Corn Growers Association knows that many of you are thinking about applying one of the three commercially available new-formulation dicamba mixes in 2018. But did you know that to legally apply the product(s), you must now attend an EPA required training? The EPA has added the training, along with other new requirements, to the labels of XtendiMax, Engenia, and FeXapan. They are now restricted use products.


For more information including training dates and the new labels, visit:


The list of training dates has been updated. As of today, this is the current list. Pre-registration is required to attend the 90-minute training sessions. Visit to register.
