TAFCO Myrtleford will host a full course and a refresher course for AG Vet Chemical Users in June.
The refresher course will be held on Thursday, June 4, and the full course will be held on June 11 and 18.
Previously called the Farm Chemical Users Course, this course is the industry standard for training in chemical use, storage and handling.
The course provides the required training for many Industry Quality Assurance Programs and is necessary to apply for the Victorian Agricultural Chemical Users Permit (an ACUP is required for users of Schedule 7 and other Restricted Chemical Products).
It covers pest ID, Modes of Action, label interpretation, issues associated with chemical use, formulation types, weed and pest control application, animal health, transport and disposal, preparation and clean up, recording and other procedures.
