Training classes have been scheduled for the producers in Dawson County who need to be certified or recertified to purchase restricted use pesticides.
Three meetings have been scheduled throughout Dawson County. The meeting details follow:
Extension educator Alan Coor says around 270 producers in Dawson County need to be certified. Producers should check their pesticide applicator certificates, they will want to attend if it has already expired, if it expires in 2014 or if they have never had a card.

Producers should contact their local extension office for more information or other options for certification.
