Nitrogen Management Training for Certified Crop Advisers @ Wedgewood Weddings Fresno
Mar 3 @ 8:00 am – Mar 4 @ 12:00 pm

After six years of providing in-person Nitrogen Management Certification training, stakeholders have been in discussions to find an avenue to help new CCAs qualify to sign off on the Irrigation and Nitrogen Management Plans (INMP).  Limitations on the number of training opportunities and attendees has led the group to approach online learning and testing options to issue Nitrogen Management Certification after the March 2020 training.  The March 2020 Nitrogen Management Certification in Fresno will be the final training available before the new Certification program goes into effect.
