The spring weather we have been anticipating is just around the corner and will be here before we know it. As we look ahead to the spraying season, we want to keep you up to date. If you plan to purchase dicamba, you must have a restricted use pesticide license. All producers will be required to sign a waiver of liability before purchasing or spraying any dicamba product. If you intend to have Two Rivers spray for you, it must be scouted by one of our employed agronomists prior to application. Two Rivers reserves the right to refuse service on any field considered to be in a highly sensitive area and may implement a $350 clean out fee for each application. The custom rate for dicamba will be $15 per acre.
Key Label Requirements to be aware of:
These are just key requirements, be sure to refer to content label for all restrictions.
- Nozzle type must be listed on the dicamba tank mix and pressure must be within manufacturers recommendations.
- All applications must be applied at ten gallons per acre minimum.
- Do not exceed 15 mph ground speed.
- Reduce your speed to 5 mph when spraying field boundaries.
- Do not exceed a boom height of 24 inches.
- Wind speeds should be between three and ten mph.

- Maintain a 110-foot buffer when applying upwind from the field edges or outer edges if a sensitive crop exists.
- Applicators must consult sensitive crop registries before spraying – avoiding spray drift at the application site is the responsibility of the applicator.
