Last Pesticide Safety Education Program for Private Applicators is today

Private Pesticide applicators, don’t forget that today is the last Private Pesticide Applicator class of the year. If you need a private pesticide application license or have one that you need to renew, you will need to attend this class. It is in the 4-H Building on the Fairgrounds. It will start at 1:30 pm Central time.

Chemigation Applicator Training next Tuesday, April 7

If you need a Chemigation applicators license, or have one that expires this year, you need to attend this class. It will be held at 1:00 pm in the Cherry County Courthouse meeting room. Chemigation training is for people who apply fertilizers or chemicals through their irrigation system.

Chemigation training is also available online. You will still need to come in the office and take the test, but at least you can do most of it online.
