The Tennessee Department of Agriculture is taking measures to mitigate the risk of drift of herbicides containing dicamba.
State and federal laws mandate applicators strictly follow label directions and consider the weather and potential for temperature inversions when applying any herbicide. Any suspected misapplication should be reported immediately to TDA at 800-628-2631 or 615-837-5148. The department will take appropriate enforcement action for any
misapplication, including but not limited to suspension or revocation of a certificate and state penalties up to $1,500 per acre, in addition to federal penalties and possible criminal prosecution.
