Regional Workshop Technical Program
Core Exam Only Testing

IPLLA will present a unique approach to industry education. Four leading manufacturers have been invited to share in-depth information about new products, technology, safety, and maintenance systems available to the entire green industry.

Participating firms include Bayer Environmental Science, Dow AgroSciences, Kenney Outdoor Solutions, and PBI Gordon. Products to be covered include Armada, Specticle Dimension, Gallery, Snapshot, Defendor, T-Zone, Q4 Plus, Zylam, and many more.

Each presentation will review a product’s pest spectrum, mode of action, and product label. Required Personal Protective Equipment will be addressed as well as appropriate mixing and application rates.

Part of the program will focus on equipment safety and safety training. We will look at proper use of ride-on  equipment, safety interlock systems, and how to develop a format for equipment inspection. Use of deflector shields,  EPA fuel requirements, and “Tailgate Training” will also be discussed.

The Indiana State Chemist will also be on hand to answer questions and to discuss 2013 State Chemist Enforcement Priorities.

This is a very well rounded program that should appeal to anyone involved in the Green Industry.
