In 2014, a new law took effect requiring all commercial fertilizer applicators (for hire) to have a license. This law was passed in 2009. A requirement that must be completed to obtain this license is to successfully complete a Green Industries Best Management Practices (GI-BMP) training class.


One option to fulfill this requirement is to take the GI-BMP class on Monday November 8th at the UF IFAS Extension Washington County East  Classroom, 1424 Jackson Ave. Chipley, FL.

Lunch will be provided. Class begins at 8:30am central standard time. Class lasts until 4:00pm.

For questions please contact Matthew Orwat at 850-638-6180 or
