The UF/IFAS Extension Manatee County has scheduled a Limited Commercial Landscape Maintenance license seminar on Tuesday, May 20, 7:30 am - 3:00 pm and exam 3:00 - 5:00 pm at the UF/IFAS Extension Manatee County Office, 1303 17th ST W, Palmetto, 34221.
If you cut lawns and/or maintain ornamentals at private homes and businesses and wish to apply pesticides on the job, including Round-Up, then this six-hour training class is a requirement before obtaining the Limited Commercial Landscape Maintenance License (often called the "Round-Up License").

This class is also offered as a review for the Limited Lawn and Ornamental (LLO) license which is for employees on private property (in-house maintenance crews) or employees of a government agency who wish to apply pesticides to lawn and landscape areas.
