Commercial applicator training for 2004
by Angela Rieck-Hinz, Department of Agronomy
Iowa State University (ISU) Extension, in cooperation with the Iowa Department of Natural Resources (IDNR), will offer a satellite downlink program on Tuesday, Jan. 6, 2004 for the commercial manure applicator program. This program will begin with registration at 8:30 a.m. and the program concludes at 12:30 p.m. You must be registered and in your seat by 9 a.m. when the program begins. This program will provide the mandated 3 hours of annual training required for commercial manure service representatives and business managers. (See article on pg. 4 for more details about fees and new program requirements.) All currently certified commercial applicators must attend training and submit forms prior to March 1, 2004, to avoid paying late fees.
Commercial manure service representatives and mangers may also meet training requirements by scheduling an appointment and watching the 3-hour tape at their local ISU Extension office or by contacting their regional IDNR field office and scheduling an appointment to take the exam. Because the training tapes are an edited version of the three-hour satellite program and must be duplicated and sent to county offices, ISU Extension can’t guarantee the training tapes will be available for training prior to mid February 2004. For this reason, you are encouraged to attend the satellite program on January 6, 2004. Currently certified commercial applicators will receive a registration brochure in mid-December 2003.
Complete the registration form and mail to the ISU Extension county office listed in the brochure where you plan to attend prior to Dec. 31, 2003. If you do not receive a brochure, please print one off the Web (pdf) or contact your ISU Extension county office.There is no registration fee to attend this program.
A manure applicator workshop for dry commercial manure applicators will be held on Thursday, Feb. 26, 2004 at Memorial Hall in Eagle Grove.This workshop is geared exclusively for dry poultry manure applicators. Please register for this event prior to Feb. 23, 2004 by calling Angie Rieck-Hinz at (515) 294-9590.
