Personal Pesticide Applicator Training & Ag Updates

If you engage in the application of a restricted-use pesticide for the purposes of producing an agricultural commodity on property you or your employer owns, or rent without compensation other than trading of personal services between producers of agricultural commodities you are considered a private applicator. For more information on pesticide application requirements please refer to the Missouri Pesticide Use Act. The Private Pesticide Applicator Program reaches into each of Missouri's 114 counties to train farmers and landowners who produce an agricultural commodity on the safe and proper use of pesticides. Private applicator training is available through local extension offices. To view more info from your local extension office, choose a location from the drop down list below.

When: February 6, 2018 at 8:30 am to 12:00 pm

Where: Saline County Fairgrounds Multipurpose Building

To Register please call 660-886-6908

Please bring your old manual if you have one. If not, there will be a mandatory $12 fee for a new manual. State regulations require a manual for each farming operation.

Dicamba Safety and Training

Synthetic auxin herbicide application presents a challenge. Despite the efficacy of these herbicides, off-target injury to other crops remains a problem for Missouri agriculture.
