May Commercial Horticulture Program

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

Green Industries Best Management Practices – May 12, from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. This is a Zoom webinar.

Florida law states that all commercial fertilizer applicators must have a certificate from the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. To get this certificate, each commercial applicator must be trained in the Green Industries-Best Management Practices (GI-BMPs) and receive a certificate of completion from UF/IFAS and the Department of Environmental Protection. 

Up to four Continued Education Units (CEU’s) will be available in the following categories: Core, Private Applicator, Ornamental & Turf, Limited Urban Fertilizer, Limited Commercial Landscape Maintenance, Limited Lawn and Ornamental, Commercial Lawn and Ornamental. Full day attendance is required to earn CEU’s.

The workshop registration fee is $10.00. Participants must register online. This program is limited to 30 participants. The fee includes access to materials and CEU’s. Participants must complete the Zoom registration that will be emailed to them after their Eventbrite purchase to have access to the Zoom meeting. There are no refunds for the registration fee.

A separate fee of $15.00 is necessary to have access to the online GI-BMP certification test. Instructions will be provided after Zoom registration is completed. Those only attending for CEU’s do not need to pay this fee.
