The Washington County Extension is hosting a training program for commercial manure applicators later this week and the deadline to sign up is today. Nancy Adrian with the Extension says this class is for applicators who apply pesticide for a fee who wish to be certified again or to be certified for the first time are encouraged to come to this training. She says applicators need to attend an annual training each year to keep their certification current.
Adrian adds if the certification expires, a test will need to be taken through the Iowa Department of Natural Resources. The preferred deadline to sign up is today to make sure there are enough materials.
The workshop is free and will be taking place Thursday from 9:00am to noon. For more information, contact the Washington County Extension.
