Applicator certification workshops

by Angela Rieck-Hinz, Department of Agronomy

If you are a confinement site manure applicator, you can receive the required 2 hours of training by attending the ongoing workshops scheduled for March 2000. Iowa law requires producers with an average weight capacity of 200,000 pounds or more of swine or poultry and 400,000 pounds or more of bovine (dairy and beef) to be certified to handle or land-apply manure from their confinement facilities. This requirement also applies to producers who handle manure in a dry or solid form from confinement facilities that exceed the above-mentioned weight requirements.

If you were certified in 1999, you are required to attend 2 hours of continuing education each year for a 3-year period to maintain your 3-year certification. If you do not attend the 2 hours of annual training, you will be required to take an exam at the end of the 3-year period to be recertified.

If you are a confinement site manure applicator and not currently certified, you are encouraged to attend one of the remaining workshops to become initially certified. You also may choose to take an exam to become initially certified.

For more information about the workshops, contact your county extension office or visit the program page at extension.agron.iastate.edu/immag/certificationFr.html
