UI Guidance on Dicamba Labels & Counties with Endangered Species

Dr. Aaron Hager at the University of Illinois issued a new Bulletin today that explains how to manage the new 57 foot omnidirectional buffers in counties where USEPA determines there is an endangered species that must be protected by a buffer when applying dicamba to soybean.
