Important 2,4-D Information for 2017

Dear Customer,

Albaugh appreciates your support in 2016 and we look forward to growing our relationship in the 2017 season. Albaugh is committed to the industry and growers across the U.S. by providing a true alternative for chemistries used by you and your customers.

As publicly announced, Enlist Duo®* has recently been approved by the EPA for new in-crop applications in many states to 2,4-D tolerant crops, including corn, soybeans and cotton. In an effort to reinforce the stewardship that the approval and introduction of thse new uses requires, Albaugh would like to remind you of the following:

At this time Albaugh’s 2,4-D products are NOT approved by application to the new GMOs. DO NOT APPLY 2,4-D HERBICIDES TO ANY 2,4-D TOLERANT GMO CROP IN 2017 UNLESS you use a product that is specifically labeled for that use in the location where you intend to make the application. Some products may be labeled for weed control prior to planting a crop and subject to minimum plant back restrictions. IT IS A VIOLATION OF FEDERAL AND STATE LAW TO MAKE AN IN-CROP APPLICATION OF ANY 2,4-D HERBICIDE PRODUCT UNLESS THE PRODUCT LABELING SPECIFICALLY AUTHORIZES THE USE. Contact the U.S. EPA, your state pesticide regulatory agency, or your university Extension Service with any questions about the approval status of 2,4-D products for IN-CROP USE.

Some states may be considering statutory or regulatory changes affecting the use of 2,4-D in such states beyond the restrictions and requirements contained on the product labels.

Please ensure that your customers are aware of these limitations on the use of 2,4-D that Albaugh’s products must be used only in accordance with label directions, and to check the laws and regulations in their state to ensure that their use of Albaugh 2,4-D products comply with those requirements. We thank you in advance for your continued support and adherence to label restrictions and legal requirements applicable to new cropping systems. We encourage you to share this reminder with your customers.

Respectfully,
Mark Blume
Albaugh LLC – Director of Sales
