Notice to Private Applicators Regarding Auxin Herbicide Requirements!

— Written By

Due to EPA changes to auxin herbicide registration, you must be a private pesticide applicator license holder in order to make over-the-top applications of auxin herbicides in 2019. Those working under the supervision of a certified applicator will not be allowed to apply over-the-top auxin herbicides in 2019. 

You or your employees need to obtain a private pesticide applicator license to apply over-the-top auxin herbicides in 2019. The test will be administered at the Windsor Community Building on January 8, at 10 a.m.

Study material can be ordered online or you can pick up an order form from the N.C. Cooperative Extension of Bertie County office.

In addition, private pesticide applicators who will be applying over-the-top auxin herbicides are still required to complete auxin training annually.

Auxin training will be held on Wednesday, February 13, at 9 a.m. before to the Bertie County Cotton Production Meeting.

If you have any questions, please contact Jarette Hurry, Ag Agent, at (252)794-5317.
