Fertilizer Applicator Certification Training
Senate Bill 150 requires fertilizer applicators to obtain certification if they apply commercial fertilizer (not manure) to more than 50 acres. Fertilizer applied through the planter box as a starter fertilizer is not included in this requirement. The certification requirement is for both private and commercial applicators of fertilizer (not manure).
Wayne and Holmes County Extension offices are offering a fertilizer applicator certification training on Friday, March 27 from 12:30 pm to 3:30 pm in the Commissioner's meeting room, located on the top floor of the Wayne County Administration Building, 428 West Liberty Street in Wooster. The cost of the certification training is $35/person. Pre-register by contacting the Wayne County Extension office at 330-264-8722 or sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The other option available to obtain fertilizer applicator certification is to take an Ohio Department of Agriculture (ODA) supervised exam.
