ISU offers manure certification workshops

by Tracy Peterson, extension communications

Iowa State University Extension is offering two series of workshops to enable manure applicators to become certified. The two series of workshops target commercial manure applicators and confinement site applicators.

Six Commercial Manure Applicator Workshops are scheduled for May and June. The workshops are three hours. To become certified, you are required by law to attend the workshop for the full three hours. If you arrive late, you will not be allowed to participate in that workshop; if you leave early you will not become certified. After completion of the commercial manure applicators workshop, you will receive a form to mail with the $50 fee to the Department of Natural Resources. DNR will then issue your certification license.

Confinement Site Applicator Certification Workshops will be held throughout the state from June through September. The Confinement Site Applicator Workshops are two hours. As with the commercial workshops, you are required to attend the certification workshop for the full 2 hours. If you arrive late, you will not be allowed to participate in that workshop; if you leave early you will not become certified. After completion of the confinement site manure applicators workshop, you will receive a form to mail with the $50 fee to the Department of Natural Resources. DNR will then issue your certification license.
