Who Should Attend

  • Recently permitted operations that have not completed the initial Land Application Training should attend the all day program. Participants attending all day (approx. 6 hrs.) will receive NDEQ Land Application Training certification.

Farm representative attendance for the first 2 hours of the morning session only will fulfill NDEQ Land Application recertification required every 5 years for permitted operations.
  • Farm staff and advisors implementing farm's permit or nutrient plan are welcome and encouraged to attend. Consider making this workshop part of your staff's training.
