Fulfills certification requirements
This meeting will fulfill the requirement for applicators who need the agricultural fertilizer applicator certification. Those with a pesticide applicator’s license will participate in a two hour program and those without a pesticide applicator’s license will need to participate in an additional hour of training at the session. Individuals have until September 30, 2017 to become certified as a fertilizer applicator.
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. If you hire a co-op or other custom applicator to make your fertilizer applications, you do not need the certification.
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.
Pre-registration is required.
