Northern Illinois Farm Show Hosts Dicamba Training

IDEAg Group LLC announces the Northern Illinois Farm Show will be hosting a dicamba training workshop at the show this year. The workshop will take place on Thursday, January 10 at 1 p.m. in the NIU Convocation Center.


The USEPA issued a decision to allow the continued use of dicamba on soybeans for 2019 and 2020. In Illinois, only certified applicators may apply dicamba over the top. “We know there are thousands of farmers and applicators in Illinois that require dicamba training. We wanted to help provide a venue for them to be trained and ready for the 2019 growing season,” said Melissa Sanders Carroll, Executive Director of Business Operations and Revenue Development for IDEAg.


The Illinois Fertilizer and Chemical Association (IFCA) is coordinating the workshop with Bayer. Attendees are asked to pre-register online and can find a link at


The Northern Illinois Farm Show will also feature exhibits from major agri-business companies across the Midwest, including Altorfer, Inc., who will feature their all-new Cat Side by Side. In addition to the dicamba training, the University of Illinois Extension will be providing a full schedule of workshops with topics including weather and watersheds. Attendees will also find tips for controlling the financial side of their business from financial management company, Stewart-Peterson.
