Are you a Florida grower in need of Core continuing education units (CEUs) to renew your restricted-use pesticide license? A new CEU Central article is now available from Citrus Industry magazine.

The article, “Understanding pesticide labeling” by Amir Rezazadeh, can be found in the August issue of Citrus Industry magazine and online here. Rezazadeh is multi-county fruit and field crops Extension agent at the University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences St. Lucie County Extension office in Fort Pierce.

His article details what you need to know about the four major categories of information found on a pesticide label: safety, environmental, product and use.

After reading the article and passing the accompanying 20-question test, growers can earn one free CEU in the Core category. Please allow two weeks to process your CEU request.

Additional Citrus Industry magazine CEU articles can be found on the CEU Central webpage. Each article is valid for a CEU for one year after it is published. The next CEU Central article will be available in November.
