Using Pesticides Wisely (UPW) 2020: The University of Georgia (UGA) and Georgia Department of Agriculture (GDA) dicamba training program will complete the 2020 sessions using online webinar delivery of materials. The decision of the U.S. EPA requires only applicators who were not trained in 2019 to be trained in 2020.

Online sessions remove the limitations of meeting room capacity, thus growers can register for the date and time which works best for their schedule. Please note that each session has its own registration link, so it is important to use the link that matches your preferred time. Registration information will require that you enter your address, phone number, email and pesticide license number (a license is not required for 2,4D application, just type in N/A). The meeting link will be emailed to registrants prior to the session. Using Pesticide Wisely (UPW) will last about 1 hour and 30 minutes. Participants will be able to submit questions using a chat box or over phone.

Attendee’s names will be placed on a list posted to the Georgia Department of Agriculture’s auxin website at Please allow up to 21 days after the training date for names to be posted. This list will serve as the official training record as attendance verification.
