Thank You

Retirement announcement.  I am no longer conducting applicator training workshops.  I am officially retiring as a trainer and will no longer be operating Wolf Consulting & Research for that purpose.

Thanks for your support.

For the 2018 dicamba application season, the EPA has suggested changes to the labels for XtendiMax, FeXapan, and Engenia.  Specifically, for the purposes of this post, the recommended minimum GPA has been adjusted/suggested to be 15 GPA.  The increased GPA will help achieve better coverage while at the same time helping keep application speeds lower. The goal being to improve efficacy and help mitigate spray drift.

Application Record Keeping: A Protocol for Documenting the Weather

A recent visual inspection of venturi nozzles used at low pressure in combination with a DRA reveals that several nozzles on the dicamba 'approved list' may not provide a suitable pattern that could effect coverage, which may also result in poor weed control.  Review the information reported at this link.

DriftWatch/FieldWatch

FieldWatch is a non-profit company that offers mapping and communication tools which are just one element of a successful formula for successful co-existence of specialty producers, large scale commodity farmers, commercial and private applicators and beekeepers.  Communication is the start, but cooperation and collaboration of all parties is essential.  Sometimes it means compromise or adjustments that foster an environment that everyone can do what they need to do with respect to the needs of others.
