First Time Fertilizer Certification Class - Auglaize/Shelby Counties - March 25th

Have you gotten your Fertilizer Applicator Certification, yet?  Do you apply fertilizer to more than 50 acres of crops that you sell?  Do you side-dress your corn and farm more than 50 acres?  Yes, that last point could be the “tipper”!  Even if you farm only 50 acres and usually split that across two or three crops, what about the year – for whatever reason – that you plant all corn??  Yep, when it’s time to side-dress that corn, you’re “got”!!

You do have a few options:  1) Hire someone else to do it.  2) Take a test to get your certification.  3) Join us on Monday, March 25th for the three-hour Fertilizer Applicator Certification Training . . . and avoid any test!  We’ll even give you a choice of two sessions!

Auglaize and Shelby County Extensions will be holding this Fertilizer Applicator Certification course at the Palazzo, 309 W. Main Street, Botkins (between exits 102 and 104 off I-75) on March 25th.  You can choose from 2 p.m.-5 p.m. or 6:15 p.m.-9:15 p.m. and there will be a light supper available between those two sessions.  The cost is $30 for the training.  Instructors will be Jeff Stachler ( and Debbie Brown (  Contact either one of us to get signed up!
