County Agent Update


Private Pesticide License Trainings

This week, Feb. 29 through March 4, those with expiring North Dakota private pesticide applicator license will be receiving a letter from the Extension Office reminding you that you are due to be recertified. During the KUMV Farm and Ranch Show held March 15 and 16 we will be doing pesticides on the first day. In past years this training was always held on the second day, but we will be switching the date this year to the first day, Tue., March 15, from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. The Extension Office and I will be hosting a recertification for those that will be receiving a letter. Those that have not had a license or have gone longer than three years without recertifying will have to attend the training from 9:30 a.m to 12:30 p.m. then immediately take the written exam. Upon passing you will receive your license which is good for three years. This event is held at the Raymond Family Community Center. For more information please contact the Extension Office at 701-577-4595.
