Three private pesticide applicator training events upcoming in NW MN

Do you farm land that you own and rent for a crop that you then sell?   Does your license to purchase and apply restricted use pesticides expire on March 1, 2020?  Do you prefer to not take tests? Do you want to learn new things?

If the answers to all of these questions is "yes", and you live in northwest Minnesota there are three remaining private pesticide applicator training events to be held in the region this month:

  • Feb. 7, 1 to 4:30 PM, Crookston: Youngquist Auditorium, NW Research & Outreach Center, University of Minnesota - Crookston campus
  • Feb. 19, 1 to 4:30 PM, Thief River Falls: Auditorium, Northland Community & Technical College, 1101 Hwy. 1 East, Thief River Falls
  • Feb. 25, 1 to 4:30 PM, McIntosh: Community Center, 240 Cleveland Ave. SW, McIntosh
Licensees will be able to renew their unexpired private pesticide applicator's license for three years by paying a $75 fee and either taking another test (paper or online) or attending a re-certification workshop such as those listed above. Some benefits from attending a workshop include seeing friends and neighbors and learning new things.

There is no pre-registration required to attend a workshop, however as no late payments will be accepted attendees are asked to bring a $75 check payable to University of Minnesota.
