Private Pesticide Applicators Training Class
Set for February 23, 2015
A private pesticide applicator training session will be offered at 6:00 p.m. on February 23rd, at the O’Bannon Bank Meeting Room on south 65 highway in Buffalo.
Missouri law requires all purchasers and users of restricted-use pesticides to attend a training session to be certified for a private applicators license.
“This three hour training program will allow individuals to recertify or receive initial training to be licensed to purchase or use restricted-use pesticide for five years,” said Terry Halleran, agronomy specialist with University of Missouri Extension who will be teaching the class.
This training is open to producers of agricultural commodities, 18 years of age or older.
“Participants will be required to purchase the Private Pesticide Applicator Reference Manual,” said Halleran. The manual is $15 and must be purchased at the time of training.
Pre-registration is required. Persons interested in attending should call (417) 345-7551 to reserve a space by February 20th.
