Newsroom / January 8, 2019

IDEAg Group LLC announces the Northern Illinois Farm Show will host a dicamba training workshop on Thursday, Jan. 10, at 1 p.m. Central in the NIU Convocation Center.

The Environmental Protection Agency issued a decision to allow the continued use of dicamba on soybeans for 2019 and 2020. In Illinois, only certified applicators may apply dicamba over the top. 

“We know there are thousands of farmers and applicators across Illinois that require dicamba training for the 2019 growing season. We are excited to provide a venue for them to complete this coursework,” said Melissa Sanders Carroll, executive director of business operations and revenue development for IDEAg.
