Career Shadowing Experience -- Custom Applicator
Fri, March 24, 2017, 8:00 AM – 12:00 PM CDT
A custom applicator is responsible for handling, blending and the application of fertilizer and ag chemicals. Applicators operate a variety of machinery including airflow and row crop liquid machines. Depending on the time of the year, students can ride along with the applicator and see first hand in the field how products are mixed, applied, and learn about the safety protocols that are followed while doing the job. Tours of the fertilizer plant and warehouse will be provided and students can learn more about the chemicals and fertilizers that are utilized and how we use a state-of-the-art plant to blend products and load out.
