The new cutoff date for Dunklin, Pemiscot, New Madrid, Stoddard, Scott, Mississippi, Butler, Ripley, Bollinger and Cape Girardeau counties has been extended to June 10 from the original June 1 cutoff date, according to a department news release.
“We have been diligently monitoring weather to determine what, if any, adjustments need to be made to the cutoff dates, as we have said we would from the beginning,” Agriculture Director Chris Chinn said in the release. “Because of the wet, cold spring, planting has been delayed. This extension will give farmers extra days to use these products prior to the cutoff date.”
All other 24(c) special local need label restrictions remain the same. The cutoff date for all other Missouri counties is still July 15. After the cutoff dates, no applications (burndown, preplant, preemergence and postemergence) may be made.
