Anyone working on the cranberry bogs (bogs that have been treated within 30 days) who does not have a Massachusetts Pesticide Certification needs to have worker protection training each year. I am offering a few more dates on ZOOM that your workers could attend to cover this requirement. This will be a handler training and will allow workers to help applying general use pesticide and apply Roundup (glyphosate) or spot treat with Callisto, Intensity or Stinger. This training can be done with each person on a smartphone or computer, or in a group setting around a screen – but I need verification of each person attending. Paperwork will be completed that covers EPA WPS requirements.
