If you are a Florida grower who uses auxin technology in your cotton or soybean and you farm in Georgia too, you need to get certification from BOTH states. The schedule for the 2021 UGA Extension Auxin Trainings has been finalized. Below are the training requirements as well as a schedule with the zoom links. All of the meetings will be virtual; however, technology/internet service can be a problem. If you need help, contact your UGA Extension agent.
The Georgia Department of Agriculture has a from that can be used to address farms with multiple participants viewing the UPW Training on one computer. For those of you that need the form, please contact Lisa at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone (912) 871-6130.
