Pesticide Update Meeting

Pesticide Update Meeting

The McKean County Conservation District and Penn State Cooperative Extension are co-sponsoring a Pesticide Update Meeting on Thursday, January 26, 2010, at the Gethsemane Lutheran Church Hall on Arnold Avenue in Port Allegany.

The meeting will begin at 1:00 PM and is targeted at local pesticide applicators. Participants are asked to contact Penn State Cooperative Extension Office of Potter County at 814-274-8540 to pre-register by Wednesday, January 19, 2010. The meeting will be worth two core and three category pesticide update credits for private applicators to maintain their certification.

The afternoon guest speakers will include Tom Butzler, Penn State Extension Educator from Clinton County, giving a vegetable update and information on colony collapse disorder in bee hives. Craig Williams, Tioga County Extension Educator, will give a farm insurance update and Bill Waltman, from the Potter County Penn State Extension Office will speak on soils and climate issues and cover crops. Finally, Jim Clark, McKean County Extension Educator, will talk about the safety and stability of pesticide containers.

Financial and other support for this project is provided by the Pennsylvania Association of Conservation Districts through a grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection under Section 319 of the Clean Water Act, administered by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

Penn State is committed to affirmative action, equal opportunity, and the diversity of its workforce.
