We have concluded our local programs for Pesticide and Fertilizer Recertification credit. As a reminder, be sure to return the invoice from the Ohio Department of Agriculture with your information and check to complete the recertification process. If you need a new invoice, call ODA at 614-728-6270.
If you still need to recertify in 2021, please contact the Extension Office.

In the past three years, many beef producers in Ohio were certified in the Beef Quality Assurance program. We encourage every producer to complete this certification and to participate in the program. For those who entered into the program three years ago, the re-certification cycle will begin soon.
Online certification and recertification is available at https://www.bqa.org/beef-quality-assurance-certification/online-certifications.
At this time, it is strongly encouraged for those who have access to complete certification online. At OSU Extension, we will continue to monitor public health guidance, and when appropriate offer in-person certification opportunities.
