AG TREE CROP TRAINING & TESTING FOR AGRICULTURAL PESTICIDE APPLICATORS

On Oct 18, 2017 at 9:00 a.m., the UF / IFAS - St. Lucie County Extension will be conducting a training and testing program entitled “Ag Tree Crop Training and Testing.” It is designed to teach participants about the licensing and regulatory requirements of Agricultural tree crops applicators in Florida, pest identification, pest management, the Worker Protection Standards, application equipment, equipment calibration and calculations, calculating dilutions and calculations, calculating dilutions and site sizes, and understanding the label. After the training, Garima Kakkar, Extension Agent, will be administering the licensing exams.

Pesticide applicators who purchase or use pesticides classified as restricted-use by the U.S. EPA must demonstrate that they meet certification standards established by the Agency under the authority of the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA) as Amended. The Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services mandates applicator licensing requirements under Chapter 487. These mandates state that applicators must pass written examinations to be licensed. Applicators must re-certify either by re-examination or by attending pesticide education programs to acquire continuing education credits.

The Florida Agricultural Tree Crop Pesticide License is available either as a Public certification, for those applicators that apply pesticides to row crops and that work for federal, state, county or municipal public agencies, or as a Commercial certification for contractors.

The Florida Agricultural Tree Crop Pesticide Certification Exam requires a passing grade (70%), and a passing grade (70%) on the General Standards (CORE) Exam. This certification must be renewed every 4 years either by testing or with 12 Continuing Education Units (CEUs).

For more information about the Ag Tree Crop course, please call the Extension office at (772) 462-1660.
