Indiana USDA-NRCS and Conservation Cropping Systems Initiative (CCSI), along with partners like Purdue Extension, have been working with a team from Purdue University who are researching vole damage across Indiana cropland - especially where cover crops are involved.

Private applicators are individuals who spray restricted use pesticides or apply manure from a confined feeding operation (CFO) to their own land. The license is active for a period of five years. Private applicators must attend three private applicator recertification programs (PARPs) within that five year period to keep their license active and avoid the need to re-test. No more than two programs may be attended for credit in any one calendar year.
