CELINA – There will be an Agricultural Fertilizer Applicator Certification three hour training for those without a pesticide applicator license.
This will be held on Dec. 1 from 6-9 p.m. at Wright State University Lake Campus, 7600 Lake Campus Drive, Celina, Ohio 45822.
Pre-registration is required. There is no charge for the program, but pre-registration is required. Registration available at: nutrienteducation.osu.edu or call 419-586-2179.
This meeting will fulfill the three-hour requirement for applicators who need the agricultural fertilizer applicator certification and do NOT currently have a pesticide applicator license. Those applicators who have a license can attend a session in conjunction with their pesticide recertification or attend this session to meet the requirement.
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 no need the certification,
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.
