2021 Winter Private Applicator Pesticide License Credit Opportunities
N.C. Cooperative Extension, Currituck County Center will be offering a number of opportunities to receive Private Applicator Pesticide License credits this winter meeting season. Meetings will look different due to COVID-19 restrictions; however, we are committed to providing research-based information as safely as possible. We will be offering a number of in-person/Zoom training in the upcoming months. In-person training will be limited in attendance and all COVID-19 restrictions must be followed by attendees. The current restrictions require no more than 10 participants, which includes speakers, masks must be worn, and attendees must be spaced 6ft apart. In order to receive pesticide credits for Zoom meetings, participants must keep their webcams on throughout the duration of the meetings. For questions or concerns, please contact Adam Formella, Agriculture Extension Agent at 252-232-2261.
2021 Auxin Herbicides-Best Management Practices
As most have heard, the recently approved federal labels for dicamba-containing products labeled for over-the-top use to dicamba-tolerant cotton and soybean still require annual training. Therefore, NC State Extension, in cooperation with N.C. Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, will continue to provide training to North Carolina famers, applicators, and retailers via the Auxin Herbicides-Best Management Practices training. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the training in 2021 will look different. All classes will be offered through Zoom, except the two highlighted in yellow. The highlighted classes will be offered as a Zoom, as well as in-person for up to 9 participants each. If you’d like to attend in person, you must contact the Extension office at least 24 hours prior to class. To receive the Zoom link, email Adam Formella at firstname.lastname@example.org. One hour of N,O,D,& X credits will be offered.
