Farm Exemptions Apply to Most DOT Rules for Hauling Enlist

In most cases, Illinois farmers who transport Enlist for their own use are exempt from U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) hazardous material regulations, according to Rodney Knittel, Illinois Farm Bureau assistant director of transportation and infrastructure.
“As the popularity of Enlist is increasing, you’re (farmers) going to be given documents from ag retailers. IFB wants farmers to know the reason behind this and what applies to farmers by law,” Knittel told FarmWeek.
Knittel explained hazardous materials (HazMat) have long been in place for Class 9 hazardous materials, which are miscellaneous hazardous materials that include the Enlist ingredient of 2-4D. “We want to make sure farmers know it (Enlist) is a Class 9,” he added.
Knittel outlined the regulations that apply to farmers who are transporting Enlist products for field-to-field use.
