Fulfills certification requirements
This meeting will fulfill the three-hour requirement for applicators that need the agricultural fertilizer applicator certification and do NOT currently have a pesticide applicator license. Those applicators that have a license can attend a session in conjunction with their pesticide recertification, or attend this session to meet the requirement.
Pre-registration is required.
There is no charge for the program, but pre-registration by 4-3-17 is required because of limited space in the room.
Who needs the agricultural fertilizer certification?
Fertilizer certification is required if you apply fertilizer (other than manure) to more than 50 acres of agricultural production grown primarily for sale no later than September 30, 2017. If you hire a co-op or other custom applicator to make your fertilizer applications, you do not need the certification. Applicators are encouraged to become certified as soon as possible.
What will be covered in the training?
Best management practices will be the basis of the agricultural fertilizer certification training with a focus on fertilizer applications that have the appropriate rate, timing, placement and source.
