Pesticide Applicator Training Scheduled

Farmers and ranchers who use restricted use pesticides in their operations need to have a license to purchase those products.  For producers whose license are expiring in 2016 or for those needing a license for the first time, Private Pesticide Applicator Training (PPAT) sessions have been scheduled.

Classes will be held January through March, depending on county. Contact your local Regional Agronomy Specialist to find out dates and locations for a nearby PPAT.
