Greenhouse/NurseryGrowers have wanted a pesticide recertification program more tailored to them, and offered
in the fall. The U of MN is happy to provide this, and is happy to work with MNLA to bring this program forward. We
are including topics relevant to both the flower grower and the nursery industry now as many of us grow both crops
Please join us for a focused, informative, popular, inexpensive opportunity to get new information, and get recertified
as a pesticide applicator at a meeting tailored for both the greenhouse and nursery industries!
