Subject:  Imprelis Update Panel Discussion Added To Summer Field Day

In response to the many concerns raised by members regarding the damage caused to certain trees by the DuPont herbicide Imprelis, we have organized a special one hour panel discussion to address the issue at our upcoming Summer Field Day on August 25th.

Our panel will include representatives from the Office of the Indiana State Chemist including David Scott, Pesticide Administrator, as well as representatives from Purdue’s Department of Agronomy, and the Plant and Pesticide Diagnostic Lab.  This panel discussion will be held beginning at 3:30pm in Hall A of the Hendricks County 4-H Conference Center and will work to bring us all up-to-date on this ever changing story.

As many of you already know, the United States Environmental Agency issued a Stop Sale Order on Imprelis effective Thursday August 11, 2011 (in sidebar at the left) in response to thousands of reports of tree damage caused by application of the product to turf.  Whether you did, or did not use Imprelis, the implications of this historic event in our industry; will undoubtedly be felt for many years to come.

The panel discussion will be open to attendance by any firm registered for the IPLLA Summer Field Day.  I urge you to join us that day.
