Bacon County Ag Update

Bacon County Pesticide Training

This is an updated announcement with the correct flyer.

There will be a pesticide training in Bacon county February 21, 2017. The meeting’s primary focus will be on changes to the Worker Protection Requirements for agriculture workers. These new EPA requirements will affect everyone that uses workers beyond family members to apply or harvest crops. Will we have Dr. Mickey Taylor from UGA here to explain the rule changes. There will be other presentations that covers understanding pesticide labels and reviews of Blueberry spray programs for disease, insects and weeds. The first hour and a half is applicable to everyone that uses agriculture pesticides and I urge you to attend. Pesticide CEU hours will be issued for the course.
