Additionally, ResponsibleAg will be hosting an upcoming auditor training.
ResponsibleAg will host auditor training June 19-22, 2018, at the Ford B. West Center for Responsible Agriculture in Owensboro, Ky.
At the heart of ResponsibleAg is the goal of providing accurate and credible audits consistently across the entire group of carefully trained ResponsibleAg credentialed auditors. Each auditor must successfully complete this training course, as well as annual refresher training to maintain proficiency and certification.
Training will be conducted at a retired agrichemical facility specifically designed and retrofitted for training purposes. Covering three acres, the facility is really one huge "prop" that appears to be an active working farm center with dry and liquid fertilizer, anhydrous ammonia, package and bulk crop protection chemicals, seed and other typical activities one would find at a retail farm center.
