I recently received the January – February newsletter from the UW-Extension Office in Trempealeau County. There are several events that may be of interest to area farmers. Check with your local UWEX office for additional information. There looks to be some more opportunities to acquire your private applicator license. Please remember there are a lot of insecticides, and some herbicides you cannot purchase unless you are licensed.
