This blog is for Polk County Florida small farms and pesticide applicators as a method of communication and sharing information. This blog is administered by the University of Florida IFAS Extension Polk County Extension Agent, Mary Beth Henry.
The WPS program is currently undergoing several provisions. In the past, a trainer completing the WPS Train-the-Trainer course would receive a certificate that would not expire. However, under the new provisions, EPA is developing new training materials and requiring all who were previously trained to be re-trained. This class will meet the new requirements for Train-the-Trainer. Attendees will receive a certificate.
The Sept. 19 class will feature WPS state coordinator, Ricardo Davalos who will cover the adopted changes to the WPS program. This is your chance to ask questions!
There is a $20 class fee. You may pay at the door with cash or check made out to "Manatee County Friends of Extension"
