This training includes information on preventing injury. By understanding the off-target movement of herbicides better and by knowing what factors contribute to it, applicators can more easily take preventative steps. Information is provided here on typical injury symptoms that result from exposure to PGR or auxin herbicides as their use is expected to greatly increase. Injury diagnosis assistance and resources for handling injured plants and communicating with neighbors are shared as well.
Although this training was developed with herbicide tolerant crop (HTC) growers in mind, it is also intended to be useful for a much broader audience.
