Pesticide applicator training to be held
The last chance for farmers to attend private pesticide applicator training locally will be April 15 at the Washington County Extension Office on the fairgrounds. One session will be offered from 1:30 to 4 p.m. There is a cost for the training .
Pre-registration is not required but applicators are encouraged to contact the Extension Office. Pesticide applicators who wish to recertify by training and not by exam must attend a continuing instruction course each year. There is also the option of taking an exam to recertify.
Washington County Extension is now a field test site for those needing to take pesticide applicator tests. The next test will be offered on April 12, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. All tests are available at this site and will be given on a first-come, first-serve basis. Tests are administered by the Iowa Department of Ag and Land Stewardship.
Please contact the Washington County Extension Office at 319-653-4811 for more information.
