Private pesticide applicator certification Thursday

RICHMOND — The final training of the season to certify or re-certify those that need Private Farm Pesticide Applicator Certification (PATIM) will take place this Thursday, Feb. 7 at noon and 6 p.m. at the Madison County Extension Office. If you are spraying restricted use pesticides on your farm, you need this certification. If you charge a fee to someone else for these services, you will need to obtain a Commercial Applicator License through KDA. The private pesticide applicator training does not pertain to the Commercial Applicator License Certification.

You need to attend only one session to be certified to use restricted-use pesticides on your farm. There is no cost for this certification.

It is important to note that if you are not using your present card, and will not be using restricted-use pesticides in the future, you do not need to re-certify. Call to let us know, and we can take your name off our list. If you have questions, please call me at 623-4072.

Clark, Madison and Estill County corn and soybean production update

A meal will be served so please call 623-4072 to reserve a spot or with any questions.

    Skeptics can come to the Easter Eggstravaganza in Richmond’s Irvine-McDowell Park on Saturday to see for themselves. However, the bunny still doesn’t fly in bad weather. But on Monday, temperatures in the 60s with partly cloudy skies were predicted for Saturday.
