More information:

Fulfills certification requirements!

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 also attend this session to meet the requirement.

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.

Heather Neikirk, AGNR Extension Educator, OSU Extension, Stark County @ 330-832-9856, ext. 3476 or neikirk.2@osu.edu.
