Farmers, as well as commercial pesticide applicators, who apply restricted use pesticides are required to obtain continuing education credits by attending approved classes. Cooperative Extension staff across the state offer these classes, which cover topics such as pesticide safety and proper usage. A pesticide safety class was held on September 21st for farmers. Thus far in 2022 Camden Extension has met local needs by offering 9 classes which provided 18 hours of continuing education credits that reached 325 pesticide applicators.
