Our flag is no ordinary flag. It was first decreed that there should be a star and stripe for each state (representing the original 13 colonies).

Flag the Technology continues to improve the management of fields from being contaminated with herbicides. It is an inexpensive method to indicate a particular herbicide technology placed on a field entrance or exposed location in a field. These flags are used as indicators, and are visible from the ground as well as from the air.
The objective of Flag the Technology is to reduce herbicide errors, and to help with responsible pesticide application. The preferred flag is a 12”x18” triangle mounted on a 6' whip-style fiberglass pole without a bracket. This is a slightly larger flag than the standard flags built for bicycles.
Flag Color System:
· Red: Conventional (no herbicides)
· White: Roundup Read Technology
· Bright Green: Liberty Link Technology
· Bright Yellow: Clearfield Technology
· Black: Tolerance to dicamba herbicide or Xtend®
· Teal: Both 2,4-D and FOP or the Enlist® technology
· Black and White checks: Tolerance to dicamba and Roundup
Adding two or more colors of marker flags to the entrance to a field indicates stacked technology. To read more about Flag the Technology, check out this article written by Pam Smith at AgWeb Powered by Farm Journal http://www.agweb.com/article/flag_the_technology/.
