TODAY'S THOUGHT

All the personal declarations of righteousness won't make you righteous. All the denial of sin won't make you sin free. That's why each and every one of us is in constant need of a Savior.

    BISMARCK, ND - Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring has issued a Special Local Needs (SLN) registration to Syngenta Crop Protection, LLC, enabling North Dakota dry bean growers to manage weeds with Reflex® herbicide.

    Syngenta has requested a new SLN registration for Reflex to provide dry bean growers another option when choosing products to control weeds in parts of North Dakota.

    "Weeds such as nightshades, redroot pigweed and waterhemp are difficult to control in crops such as dry beans," Goehring said. "As weeds like these continue to move west, it is imperative to control these weeds and minimize potential for resistance development."

    Currently Reflex can only be used in North Dakota east of U.S. Highway 281. The SLN labeling allows Reflex to be used in an additional 26 counties in North Dakota. The SLN maintains the lowest maximum use rate from the Section 3 label, has more restrictive crop rotation intervals and an application cutoff date.

    Users must comply with all restrictions, precautions and the directions found in the SLN labeling. A copy of the labeling must be in the user's possession at the time of application.

    This SLN registration is effective immediately and expires Dec. 31, 2023.

    Section 24(c) of the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide Act gives states the authority to register additional uses for federally registered pesticide products, or new products to meet special local needs.

    For more information, contact Environmental Scientist Jerry Sauter at 701-328-2980, 1-800-242-7535 or jdsauternd.gov mailto:jdsauternd.gov.

    North Dakota is one of the major dry beans growing states in the U.S.
