Northwest Iowa Dairy Outlooks

A local discussion of current science and issues concerning dairying in northwest iowa

The Texas AgriLIFE Extension office in Wichita county will sponsor a pesticide applicator program offering five continuing education units on Monday, November 15. The program will be held at the Texas AgriLIFE Extension Service Wichita County office located at 600 Scott Ave, Suite 200 in Wichita Falls. The training will begin at 9 a.m. and conclude at 3:30 p.m.

Not a wheat and cotton program, but designed especially for county and city employees who spray right-of-ways, bar ditches and maintain municipal properties using pesticides.

This program will offer five CEU credits including rules and regulations (1), drift management (1) plus general (1) and IPM (2).

At 9 a.m. Dr. Don Renchie will begin his live, on-line presentation on pesticide rules and regulations; at 10 a.m. Dr. Mark Matocha will continue the on-line presentation focusing on pesticide safety. At 11 a.m. Wichita County Extension Ag Agent Fred Hall will address issues with drift management. The class will break from 12 noon to 1 p.m. for lunch. At 1 p.m. Dr. Todd Baughman will focus on weed identification and chemical use. After an evaluation at 3 p.m., the program will adjourn.

Coffee and refreshments will be available during the program, but attendees will be responsible for their own lunch arrangements.

The registration fee of $10 is payable at the door; however lunch will be on your own. Room capacity is 40, so pre-registering will guarantee you a spot.

To pre-register or for more information call the Texas AgriLIFE Extension office in Wichita Falls at 940.716.8610.
