3-hour training for those needing to become certified

Fulfills certification requirements

Participating in this workshop will fulfill the 3 hour requirement for farmers to become Certified Fertilizer Applicators in Ohio. This workshop is for all farmers who wish to become Certified Fertilizer Applicators, regardless if they have a pesticide applicators license.

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.

Pre-registration is required because space is limited – no charge for this program.
