Carroll, Iowa. Commercial manure applicators should plan to attend the Commercial Manure Applicator training program scheduled for Jan. 6, 2015, from 9 a.m. to noon. Iowa State University Extension and Outreach, in cooperation with the Iowa Department of Natural Resources (DNR), will conduct the required three-hour training workshop. There is no fee to attend the workshop, but commercial applicators must register by Dec. 30 by contacting the ISU Extension Carroll County office at 712-792-2364.

Commercial manure applicators needing to recertify and those wanting to certify for the first time should attend. All currently certified commercial manure applicator licenses will expire on March 1, 2015. The program, which meets the requirement for three hours of annual training, will cover applicator rules, water quality issues, manure sampling and testing, and case studies.

Those wanting to renew must complete training requirements and submit forms and fees to the DNR prior to March 1 to avoid paying late fees. The law requires all commercial manure applicators to attend three hours of training annually to meet certification requirements. Businesses that primarily truck or haul manure of any type or from any source are also required to meet certification requirements.
