The Asian longhorned tick (ALT) is a threat to companion animals, livestock and potentially also to wildlife. So far this species in the US has not been found infected with human pathogens. There is still a lot we don't know about ALTs, so this free webinar will serve as an overview of what we do know about the biology, ecology, and vectorial capacity of this tick species?and how existing approaches for combating native ticks may either work or backfire on this species. The presenters will also discuss other invasive tick species in the US and the potential for additional ones to become established.

From our Team to Yours: COVID-19 Resources for Dairy Farmers

The South Central NY Dairy and Field Crops Team has compiled a list of articles on their blog that we think may be useful to dairy producers and their service providers as we all navigate the COVID-19 situation. Please stay safe and reach out to our team if you have questions or need help finding information. We are here to help with tools and resources to support all of the normal day-to-day dairy, livestock, and field crop management considerations, in addition to emerging topics related to COVID-19.

Do you have visitors or employees travelling outside of the state?

They might need to quarantine! In response to the high rates of COVID-19 happening in other parts of the country, the NYS Department of Health will be requiring anyone entering NY from restricted states to quarantine for 14 days. For essential farm laborers, this would involve an employee seeking COVID-19 diagnostic testing within 24 hours of entering the state, monitoring their temperature and symptoms while wearing a face covering in public spaces, and avoiding extended periods of time in public. The CAN continue to work while following proper protocols during this time. For more information, read this post from Cornell Agricultural Workforce Development or contact our Farm Business Management Specialist, Katelyn Walley-Stoll.



Dicamba Notice to Users, Distributors and Sellers - June 29, 2020

On June 3, 2020, the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit vacated EPA's registration of three products containing the active ingredient dicamba, which effectively cancelled their federal registrations. The three products are: Xtendimax with Vaporgrip Technology, Engenia, and FeXapan.
On June 8, 2020, in response to the Court's decision, EPA issued a Cancellation Order for these three products. In light of the Court's decision associated with these registrations and the provisions of EPA's Cancellation Order to implement that decision, DEC is taking these actions:
1) Registrations - The registrations of the three products will be cancelled as of July 31, 2020 in accordance with the provisions of ECL Section 33-0713. Thirty days' notice will be provided to the registrants of these products.
2) Distribution or Sale - Distribution or sale of existing stocks of the three products shall be limited as follows:
• Distribution or sale by registrants is prohibited immediately, except for distribution for the purposes of proper disposal.
• Distribution or sale of products that are already in the possession of someone other than the registrant is permitted only for disposal or to facilitate return to the registrant or a registered establishment.
• Distribution or sale by commercial applicators is permitted to facilitate use no later than July 31, 2020.
3) Use - All use, including storage of open containers, is prohibited after July 31, 2020.
Questions about dicamba may be directed to pesticidecompliance@dec.ny.gov or ppr@dec.ny.gov or by calling 518-402-8727.
