Supervisory Pesticide Applicator Registration Certificate - General Use Training: Forest (C1)
Monday, 09/25/2017 (08:30 AM - 05:00 PM)

UNH Cooperative Extension will host a series of all-day training workshops in September 2017 for those seeking a supervisory registration certificate - general use from the state’s Division of Pesticide Control. Individuals wishing to obtain this certification need to participate in a series of training classes, pass a written and oral exam, and show proof of insurance.

Training will prepare participants for the state certification exam. Instructors will provide a review of the information found in the National Pesticide Applicator Certification Core Manual and NH Code of Administrative Rules during the core classes (you should only attend one of the two core classes; they are both the same). Trainings will be offered for the following categories: turf (G2), ornamental (G1), right-of-way (B), microbial (F8), and forest (C1). The number of recertifcation credits/class will be announced shortly.

New Hampshire requires that anyone applying pesticides commercially must be certified as a commercial pesticide applicator. This certification is required regardless of whether the applicator gets paid for the service or the pesticide is classified as general or restricted use. This includes over-the-counter homeowner-type pesticides.

Cost: $115 per day. For those who need it, there is an additional cost for study materials, which participants are required to purchase and read prior to attending the sessions.

Participants can register by visiting our website (https://extension.unh.edu/Pesticide-Safety-Education-Program/Register-Supervisory-Registration-Certification-General-Use).


Registration will be opened until 8/1/2017.

'Under the Vines' Kiwiberry Field Day
Tuesday, 09/26/2017 (05:00 PM - 07:00 PM)

The annual Kiwiberry Field Day is an opportunity for current and future commercial producers, value-added processors, and nurseries to visit the vineyard, learn about the program's current research and breeding activities, and share their knowledge, questions, and perspectives. “It’s been a productive year, and we have a lot to share,” said plant breeder Iago Hale, assistant professor of specialty crop improvement and leader of the program.


This year's Field Day will feature various production-related demonstrations, including weed management with a tractor-mounted HYD-ROW-HOE, an improved approach to irrigation and frost protection, berry evaluation to determine harvest time, and pruning and vine management. Hale and graduate student Will Hastings also will share research reports on the effects of harvest time and storage on ripening and marketability, kiwiberry genetics and what producers need to know before buying vines, and relevant results from the IX International Kiwifruit Symposium.


For more information on this research, visit http://www.unh.edu/halelab/kiwiberry.  The field day is free and open to the public; however, the focus is on research for commercial production.
