K-State Research and Extension, NW Region counties/districts are hosting two “Virtual” Crop Pest Management Schools, December 8 and December 10 starting at 7:50 AM with “online check-in” and ending at 5:00 PM.
Join us ONLINE to learn about how to control the latest pests – weeds, insects, and diseases – affecting all crops in central and western Kansas! These schools are entirely online. In order to participate, you must have a computer (desktop or laptop) or tablet with an internet connection. The same program will be presented on both days, allowing flexibility in choosing a date for interested individuals.
Commercial Applicators can earn 1 Core Hour & 7 Hours for 1A, certified by Kansas Department of Agriculture. Certified Crop Advisors (CCA) can also earn 8 Pest Management Credits. These schools would also be an excellent educational opportunity for producers!
The cost to participate is $40. Those wishing to participate are asked to register by Sunday, December 6, by midnight. Simply go to: http://www.northwest.k-state.edu/events/crop-pest-mangagement-school or to any Extension Office website in the NW region or call:
