To apply a fertilizer with a guaranteed analysis on more than 50 acres of agriculture grown crops primarily for sale, a certification is needed by Sept. 30, 2017. Fertilizer that is run through the planter and application of lime and manure are exempt. If a custom applicator makes your fertilizer applications for you, you do not need to be certified. A Fertilizer Applicator Certification Training will also be offered at Evolution Ag from 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Feb. 22. State specialist Greg Labarge will be covering nitrogen, phosphorus, and soil testing. Register by calling 937-644-8117 or by contacting Evolution Ag. There is no cost for this training.
