Time Running Out for 2017 Pesticide Recertification

— Written By

Farmers who hold a Private Pesticide Applicator license have until September 30th to earn their credits for certifications that expire in 2017. Farmers, nursery growers, and other agricultural operations use this license type to safely apply herbicides, insecticides, and other technologies to protect crops from pests and diseases like the way we use medication in the right dosage to prevent and cure human illness.

Brunswick County is offering a course Friday morning, September 15 for 2 V credits starting at 8 a.m. and 2 X credits starting at 10 a.m. for those needing to recertify this year. Other courses are available across southeastern North Carolina this month. The list below offers 2 hours of X and V credit unless otherwise noted.
