Attending Georgia’s Using Pesticide Wisely Training
Virtual Trainings: Applicators are asked to please select one of the dates provided below to attend a virtual training. Although far from an ideal training approach, it is the most efficient and safe method to communicate critical information that applicators must understand for the 2021 growing season. The training will last no more than 1.5 hr.   If computer or internet access restricts participation, contact your local county Extension office.  

The Burke County Extension Office will offer 6 “in person” UPW trainings at the Office Park Auditorium if you prefer these to virtual.  We are limited to 25 people per session.
