Product specific training is now required for all applicators who apply RUP formulations of dicamba and all formulations containing paraquat.

Training is required for these two products prior to loading, mixing, handling, or application. You do not need to show proof of training prior to purchase.

The Wyoming Department of Agriculture (WDA) has approved the Nebraska PSEP dicamba online training program. The program is designed to fulfill the 2018 (and beyond) label training requirements for three new RUP dicamba products: Xtendimax, Engenia, and Fexapan. If you plan an application of any of these three products you must complete the training.

  • This applies to both commercial and private applicator license holders.
  • The training is hosted on eXtension Campus website. You must register with eXtension Campus before you can sign-up for the course.
  • There is no cost to this training. The WDA is awarding 2 CEU’s upon the successful completion of the dicamba program.
  • You can print a certificate once the course is completed.
  • Please email your certificates of completion to the Wyoming Department of Agriculture (see link at the bottom of this page) for credit to be issued.
