Pesticide training is online

Farmers who need to renew their permits to apply pesticides can take the necessary training online this winter.

The Ridgetown campus of the University of Guelph is providing the training on a weekly basis all winter.

To participate, farmers need to register to begin their course on a Monday and then they have the rest of the week to complete their assignments.

Only people who have successfully completed the Grower Pesticide Safety Course can buy and apply crop pesticides.
