Agricultural Fertilizer Applicator Certification Class

The Jackson-Vinton Farm Bureau, Jackson SWCD, and OSU Extension will be holding a FREE Agricultural Fertilizer Applicator Certification Class on Thursday, Sept. 7, 2017, at the OSU Extension office in Jackson, located at 17 Standpipe Rd from 9 a.m to Noon.  

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.

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.
