Certification cards for manure applicators
by Karen Grimes, Iowa Department of Natural Resources
The Department of Natural Resources has not yet issued certificates to confinement site manure applicators, who have applied for certificates in 2004. However, if the application has been received by the DNR, the applicator is certified.
Except for a few recent applications, most commercial applicators should have received their certificates.
The remaining certificates will be issued as soon as a new database is completed. In the meantime, manure applicators are welcome to call Carol Arpy at (515) 281-6581 to check on the status of their certificates.
Changes in state law in 2003 required the DNR to create a new database to track two types of commercial applicators and educational fees that are required to cover costs of administering the program.
