BISMARCK, N.D. -- The North Dakota Weed Control Association will conduct four sprayer schools during the week of May 25 to 31.

"Pesticide applicators can be recertified for spraying right-of-ways by participating in one of these schools," says North Dakota Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring. "The schools are open to commercial, government and private applicators."

Personnel from the North Dakota Department of Agriculture, North Dakota State University, North Dakota Parks and Recreation, Crop Production Services, and Dow Chemical Co. will give presentations on noxious weeds, weed identification and sprayer calibration.

Commercial applicators who are being recertified in the right-of-way category must attend the entire school.

The schools are scheduled for 8 a.m. (local time) at the following dates and locations. Preregistration with the local contact is required.
