Private Applicator v Training

— Written By and last updated by

As of now, no V credits or any other pesticide credits can be offered in person due to the COVID-19. I can conduct a V safety training online via Zoom. If you need this please contact me. 

Crop Scouting Alerts

This season, I will be conducting regular scouting and issuing my observations via email and posting on the county website. Due to the decrease in soybean acres this season, I will focus only on tobacco for my scouting. If you would like for me to add any other crops to my reports, please email me at mkwilli2@ncsu.edu.
