Get ready for spring.

Confinement site applicators: have just two more weeks to take live manure applicator certification training. The last on-site training session is offered Feb. 28.

Dry or solid manure handlers: whether commercial or confinement, applicators have four remaining opportunities for live training. Dry manure sessions are offered in Adair, Sioux, Hamilton and Buena Vista counties from Feb. 18 to 26.

All applicators: can contact the local Iowa State University Extension and Outreach office to watch a scheduled video training. Registration ensures there will be space and training materials available.

Or, consider taking advantage of DNR’s online training and fee paying option. Find more information about the certification program at www.iowadnr.gov/manureapplicator or on the Iowa Manure Management Action Group’s (IMMAG) website. 

Finally, applicators may take and pass a test in lieu of training. Please schedule a testing time at your local DNR field office.
