    Are you certified to apply fertilizer?  If you apply fertilizer (other than manure) to more than 50 acres of land to crops grown primarily for sale, you need to hold a fertilizer certificate from the Ohio Department of Agriculture.  The Tuscarawas County office of Ohio State University Extension will conduct a fertilizer certification training for anyone needing to obtain a certificate.  This is NOT recertification.  The training will be held April 9 at 7pm at the Community Center in the Village of Tuscarawas at 222 E. Cherry St.

    Nutrient Management Plan Writers are still working for the 2018 year in the Western Lake Erie Basin to write free plans for non-CAFO farmers. Our goal is to complete 65,000 acres for NMP’s in 2018. These plans are written free of charge to farmers and require a small amount of your time and effort. As the plan writer we gather information that is pertinent to your farm such as your crop rotations, tillage practices, current (within three years) soil test results, yield goals, conservation goals, where water is and more.

    It doesn’t seem very long ago that we were first getting information about SB 150, and what it might mean to our farming operation. At that time there was no urgency because we didn’t have to have this until September of 2017.

    There have been many opportunities to get certified since then. In fact, there have been over 17,250 people certified in Ohio in the past 3 years by OSU Extension. There are still a few opportunities to become certified through a 3-hour training class before the September 30 deadline, however they are becoming fewer. There is no an age limit.
