Commercial Manure Applicator
Duration/Start: Various dates, Nov-June
This program prepares students to write the examinations required for licensing as Commercial Manure Applicator or Off-farm Manure Applicator. Licensing is through Manitoba Agriculture, Food and Rural Development (MAFRD).
Manure applicator licensing is required under the Manure Amendment to the Pesticides and Fertilizers Control Act. There are two classes of licenses:
Commercial Manure Applicator - a person who transports and/or applies manure for payment
Off-farm Manure Applicator - a person or group whose livestock operations must file a Manure Management Plan under the Environmental Act (300 or more animals) and who applies at least a portion of the manure to land not owned or leased by their operation.
