GAP Training for Tobacco Producers

GAP training is now pretty much an expected thing for tobacco growers.  Some companies required GAP (Good Agricultural Practices) last year, so some people have already been trained in the initial part, but will need advanced training this year.  GAP consists of several things about the production of the crop, record keeping, and more.

I currently have 3 opportunities for GAP training.  The space is limited for these sessions, so you must pre-register.  There is no charge for the class, but you do need to log onto and get that part done prior to the training.  Please call the Adams County, OSU Extension Office to register ASAP.  These may fill up and if they do I may offer an additional session.  Call Pam in Adams Co. at (937) 544-2339 to register for one of the following times:  March 10 at 4:00 p.m. at the Ohio Valley CTC in West Union; March 10 at 7:30 p.m. at the Ohio Valley CTC; or March 19 at the Southern Hills CTC in Georgetown at 1:00 p.m.

As I said, there is no charge, you need to go to the web and get yourself registered at the address above. Then call Pam so we know how many we will have at each session.  All Pam will need is your name, phone number and the county you produce tobacco in.
