Now’s the time. Please check to see if your applicator certification is up-to-date. If you haven’t taken your annual training for manure applicator certification, get it done before you start land applying.
There are three options to become certified:
- DNR offers online training and fee-paying. If you haven’t used the system before, follow the prompts to create an Iowa ID.
- Catch a training session at an Iowa State University Extension and Outreach office. Please contact your local Extension office to schedule a session.
- Or, make an appointment at a DNR field office to take a test.
