It has been a real whirlwind of activity in the office the past week, with 81 pesticide applicators converging on the Gibson County fairgrounds Friday for a PARP/CCH talk about pesticide technology and record keeping. The elephant in the room, of course, is the new fertilizer certification rule. While the decision whether to need certification is fairly straight-forward for most, there is definitely a good amount of gray area for niche or smaller applicators.
To get any uncertainty erased, call the local extension office or Office of the Indiana State Chemist at 1-765-494-1492. Oooooorrrrr, you could attend the first Farm Winter Workshop at Gibson Southern High School on January 3rd, if you happen to feel like making the drive.
