Continuing Education Opportunities Expand

Effort led by NC Agribusiness Council
 
            The 2018 Southern Farm Show will include a major effort by the North Carolina Agribusiness Council to expand and enhance their AgLeadership & Grower Summit, now in its second year.  Much of that enhancement is the inclusion of opportunities for both pesticide license holders and Certified Crop Advisors to receive continuing education credits at the show.
            Five session, each providing continuing education credits, will be held on Wednesday, January 31 in the Holshouser Building.  Topics include pesticide violations, worker protection, agricultural advocacy, managing drift, and bee preservation. 

There is no charge for any of the classes.  Registration is on-site.  Bring your pesticide card or number.
