Commercial Manure Applicator
Duration/Start: Various dates, March/April
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.
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 (CMA) - 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.
This course is hosted annually in Winnipeg in late March/April.
