Pesticide Applicator Exam Prep Course - Johnstown Location



Lunch will be provided.  FSA New Borrower Training Credits available.

Interested in taking the NYSDEC Pesticide Applicator's exam? In this course we will be joined by a NYSDEC representative who will go over the process of applying for and taking the exam, and will stay for a Q+A session to answer all of your questions about how to obtain and maintain your license. Afterward, CCE educators will cover the basic material of the Core exam, practice exam questions, test-taking tips, and provide take-home study materials.

While not required for this prep course, you must purchase both the Core Manual and the appropriate Category Manual prior to taking the exam, and you are strongly encouraged to purchase and familiarize yourself with these manuals before attending this session. Manuals may be purchased from the Cornell Store: (800) 624-4080 or store@cornell.edu or by clicking here.

This is NOT a two day course, this is the same course offered at two different locations.

If you are interested in taking the exam 2 weeks later at a nearby location (likely the county CCE office), please indicate this in your registration so that we can schedule an exam if there is enough interest.

Contact Erik for any questions about the course.

Announcements

Cash Rent and Custom Harvest Survey

To date, there is limited information available about rental rates and fees for crop harvesting.  Farms can use this valuable information for their farm business planning to help improve decision making and profitability. 

The data that is collected, and the subsequent reports/findings/resources will be helpful for all of us to answer that call of "What's the average rental rate in my area?" and "How much do people charge to combine oats?"



Farmers Can Join MeatSuite For Free!

MeatSuite.com is a free resource provided by Cornell University where NY meat farmers can create a farm profile and list their bulk (wholes, halves, quarters) and bundled (i.e. Grilling Bundle) meat products.

Why should farmers join?

1. It's free and easy!
2. Connect with more local customers. In the past year the MeatSuite.com farm directory had 8,300 visits from New York consumers. Farm profiles get as many as 25 views per month from potential local customers. We also spotlight MeatSuite farms on social media and bring attention and purchases to farms through highlights and giveaways.

How do I join?

Farmers can visit https://www.meatsuite.com/farmers/ to create a free farm profile. You must list at least one product for your farm's profile to go live. You'll also have access to Cornell's free Meat Price Calculator, a helpful tool for pricing your meat to make a profit.

While you're on MeatSuite, check out the "Creating Consumer-Friendly Bulk Meats" publication on the log-in page. It has tips on how to create bulk meat products that are easier for first-time buyers to say "yes" to.

If you have any questions as you create your farm profile or products, we're here to help! Please email Matt LeRoux at mnl28@cornell.edu.

Spotted Lanternfly

Lycorma delicatula, or Spotted Lanternfly (SLF), is an invasive plant hopper from Asia and is an agricultural pest. In the United States, it was first found in Pennsylvania in 2014. Spotted Lanternfly has been found in New York State on Staten Island, all New York City boroughs, Long Island, Port Jervis, Sloatsburg, Orangeburg, Ithaca, Binghamton, Middletown, Newburgh, Highland, and the Buffalo area. SLF threatens the agriculture and forestry industries, and is also a nuisance pest. The nymphs and adults feed on over 70 different plants, but is especially detrimental to grapes, a black walnut, hops, maple trees and apples. New York State Ag and Markets supported CCE efforts to help bring awareness to communities and we developed this Public Service Announcement and would appreciate you sharing it with your member lists.
