Farmer Pesticide Certification

7 February 2017

Starland County is hosting a Farmer Pesticide Certification course on Thursday   March 16th from 9:00 A.M. until 4:00 P.M. at the County Council Chambers in Morrin.

This course is provided at no cost and is for Farmers who want to demonstrate environmental awareness, and use & apply pesticides safely. You will also take advanced training which allows you to purchase and use the restricted product Aluminum phosphide to control pests in stored grain. 

Home study is required to properly prepare for this training so it is imperative that you register prior to March 4th so we can get you the course materials. If you have taken a Farmer Pesticide Certification prior to 2011, and would like to renew your certificate you may also attend this course. You are required to produce your existing certificate, but will only write the Pests of Stored Grain quiz.

Due to the requirements of the training we are limited to 15 registrants, but will offer another course if necessary.

The agenda is as follows:
8:15 Registration
8:30 - 10:30 Farmer Pesticide Core Module Review
10:30 – 10:45 Break
