LE MARS, Iowa — Commercial manure applicators should plan to attend the Commercial Manure Applicator training program scheduled for Tuesday, April 2, 2019, from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. or from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. Iowa State University Extension and Outreach in cooperation with the Iowa Department of Natural Resources will conduct the required three-hour training workshop at those time. There is no fee to attend the workshop, but commercial applicators must register by contacting the ISU Extension and Outreach Plymouth County office at 712-546-7835.
Confinement manure applicators needing to recertify and those wanting to certify for the first time should attend.
Certification fees for commercial manure applicators have not changed for 2019. ISU Extension and Outreach will charge a $10 fee to applicators choosing to view the certification materials on a non-scheduled reshow day at the county office. For this reason, all applicators are encouraged to attend the workshops or to plan to view training materials on the scheduled reshow date at their local county extension office. The fee will not apply to workshops or scheduled reshow dates.
Applicators have another option, online certification, which an applicator can take their training on-line at DNR MAC eLearning site at https://elearning-dnr.iowa.gov/. The applicator will need to sign-in and get an A&A account.
For more information about the commercial applicator program contact the ISU Extension and Outreach Plymouth County office at 712-546-7835 or access a list of the training locations at: http://www.agronext.iastate.edu/immag/certification/macprogrampostcard.pdf
