Farmers need to check their Pesticide License for an expiration date. If it expires in March, 2019, you will need to attend a Pesticide Recertification Meeting before the end of March.
Union County is holding their Pesticide (and Fertilizer Applicator) Recertification meeting on February 21, 2019, at the Union County Services Building, 940 London Avenue, Marysville. Pesticide Recertification will be from 1 - 4pm (Cost $30) and Fertilizer Recertification from 4 - 5pm (Cost $10). Registration will be available on-line (soon) or in person at the Union County Extension Office. With limited seating capacity at most locations, pre-registration is highly encouraged. If you cannot attend this date, go to pested.osu.edu/Private_recert for a listing of other programs offered in the surrounding area.
For those needing recertification this year watch your mailbox for additional information from Ohio State University Extension and Ohio Department of Agriculture. For more information, please call Wayne Dellinger at the Union County Extension Office at 937-644-8117 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
