March Commercial Horticulture Program

Extension imageThe UF/IFAS Extension Alachua County Office is pleased to announce the following Commercial Horticulture program for March 2021. This program is being offered by Dr. Tatiana Sanchez, Commercial Horticulture Agent. 

Green Industries Best Management Practices – March 16, from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. (with Erin Harlow, Commercial Horticulture Agent, UF/IFAS Extension Columbia County). This is the Zoom webinar.

Florida law states that all commercial fertilizer applicators must have a certificate from FDACS. To get this certificate, each commercial applicator must be trained in the Green Industries Best Management Practices and receive a certificate of completion for UF/IFAS and FDEP.

Up to four Continuing Education Units will be available in the following categories: General Standard Core, Private Applicator, Ornamental & Turf, Limited Urban Fertilizer, Limited Commercial Maintenance, Limited Lawn and Ornamental, Commercial Lawn and Ornamental.

The workshop registration fee is $10.00 (with a $2.24 fee) and participants must register online. This registration fee includes access to materials and Continuing Education Units. A Zoom registration link will be emailed to participants to sign-in for the Zoom webinar after you have purchased your registration through Eventbrite. There are no refunds for the registration fee.

A separate fee of $15.00 is necessary to have access to the online Green Industries Best Management Practices certification test. Instructions will be provided after the Zoom registration is completed.  Those who are only attending for Continuing Education Units do not need to pay this additional fee.

Manuals can be downloaded, or participants can request one to be mailed to them directly.
