The first tobacco meeting of the winter extension season is tomorrow, December 7th, in Winston-Salem. We held Tobacco Day and tobacco agent training on December 3rd in Johnston County and now begins the round of winter meetings. A list of upcoming and past meeting dates can be found here. Meetings typically include pesticide applicator credits for those not directly engaged in tobacco production but in search of the last few credits needed to keep their license active.
