Asmark, AGCO open facility for applicators

The nation’s first all-inclusive training facility for beginning crop protection applicators opened June 12.
The Applicator Training Center, created through a collaboration between the Asmark Institute and AGCO Corp., is the home of the new four-day course dedicated to educating individuals with little or no background in the application of crop protection products and plant nutrients.
The facility and training grounds are adjacent to the Asmark Institute Agricenter that was built in 2012 and houses the anhydrous ammonia safety training course and grain safety training courses.
Course curriculum was built with extensive input from ag retailers and industry partners.
