Due to COVID-19, the opportunities to complete fertilizer and pesticide recertification have changed. All recertifications for 2020 or 2021 licenses are due to expire on July 1, 2021. If you are a farmer whose license is set to expire on July 1, 2021, please contact the Highland County Extension Office at 937-393-1918 as soon as possible.

There are two recertifications scheduled in the next two weeks, but there is an attendance limit and you must RSVP in advance. Additionally, there are opportunities to recertify online at your own pace in the comfort of your home. In-person recertifications are limited to producers whose licenses expire in 2020 or 2021.

Contact the Highland County Extension Office at 937-393-1918 for more information and to reserve your seat.
