Many have contacted us about pesticide recertification. Please know that we are planning for at least one pesticide and fertilizer recertification in 2021; however, it will not be before March 1, 2021. The class options may be virtual, online, in-person, or a combination – this has not yet been decided. Licenses will not expire and producers will still be able to purchase necessary fertilizer. ODA has notified us that there will be no penalties for persons whose licenses expired in 2020 or will not have recertifications completed before March 31, 2021. Once ODA decides, we will be notifying everyone who is up for renewal in Tuscarawas County on what they need to do to keep their license.
