Private Pesticide Applicator's Training

The University of Missouri Extension will hold a Private Pesticide Applicator's training on Wednesday, February 22 at 6:00 pm at Crowder College, Williams Building WM 103-104, in Neosho. Cost for the pesticide book is $15.00 and is required. This training is for producers of agricultural commodities, 18 years or older, wishing to renew or receive their private pesticide applicator's license in order to buy and apply restricted use chemicals on their own land. License holders need to renew their license every 5 years. Call the Newton County office at 417.455.9500 to register.

Soil Testing

Whether you are planting a garden, an orchard or thinking of hay and pasture, a soil test can help you know what you will need to amend your soil for the best results possible. Call our office for more information at 417-455-9500. Cost is $20 per sample.

Soil testing provides an estimate of the plant-available nutrients in the soil and is an essential tool for a sound fertilization program. Periodic soil testing will help to correct nutrient deficiencies, avoid excess fertilizer applications and maintain a healthy lawn, garden or cropland.
