Private Pesticide Applicator Training at Warren County Extension Center

Tuesday, March 14, 2017

All training's are held from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Classes will be held rain or shine, unless the local county school closes due to bad weather.

The training is for producers of agriculture commodities wanting to become a certified private applicator and growers needing recertification training to renew their license for another five years.

Growers wanting to purchase and apply restricted use pesticides must have a certified private pesticide applicators license issued by the Missouri Department of Agriculture.   Successful completion of University of Missouri Extension private applicator training is the requirement for receiving the license.  There is no cost for the training, but EPA requires producers to have the Private Pesticide Applicator Core book, which costs $12.  The Core Manual will be available for purchase at the training for those that do not already have a copy.

For more information or to RSVP for the training, please contact the office 636-456-3444.
