2017 Initial Pesticide Certification Meeting

2017 Initial Certification Meeting.
This is a simple way to learn the material needed to pass the licensing exam to certify as a pesticide applicator in Vermont. Remember, even organic producers are required to hold a valid license to purchase or apply restricted use products, and many commonly-used products in organic production are restricted-use. -TB
