Pesticide Applicator and Course Provider Update – COVID 19
I hope all are doing well during this time of national pandemic. Agriculture as we know it is rolling along at good pace, at least here on a local level in Calhoun County. Those who are needing CEU’s or the actual Pesticide Applicator License, some of these procedures have changed for the time being. The following link is an update on renewal and ceu requirements during this time.
