Do you apply fertilizer (other than manure) to more than 50 acres of land on crops grown primarily for sale? If so, the Ohio Department of Agriculture requires that you complete a three-hour fertilizer certification training. Even if you apply fertilizer to less than 50 acres and/or feed all of your crops to livestock, you are encouraged to become certified. The Tuscarawas County office of Ohio State University Extension will conduct a fertilizer certification class for anyone who is not certified. This is NOT for recertification. The training will be held April 9 at 7 pm at the Community Center in the Village of Tuscarawas at 222 E. Cherry St.
Please contact the Tuscarawas County office of Ohio State University Extension at 330-339-2337 no later than April 5 to pre-register. Additional information is available at http://tuscarawas.osu.edu.
