The Systems approach shows growers how to integrate variables such as SWD behavior, the host plant, the chemical characteristics of specific insecticides and the weather at the target site during and after the insecticide application to improve control of SWD.
Participates can also take the Restricted Use Pesticide Applicator (RUP) Exam for growers who need to obtain their RUP certification or whose certification has expired. There will be a brief review of the RUP Training Manual (Private Applicator). The exam may be taken in English or Spanish. This workshop will earn 4 RUP’s to growers who want to renew their Pesticide Applicator Certification Certificate.
There is a workshop fee of $20 per person to cover lunch and materials. A separate fee of $50 per person (check or money order only, payable to the “State of Michigan”) is required to take the exam to obtain a Restricted Use Pesticide Applicator Certificate.
After Aug. 10, 2018 there is a cancellation fee of $20.
