Private Pesticide Application Training
Private pesticide applicator training sessions are being offered in Greene by University of Missouri.
Under Missouri law, this training provides certification to obtain a Private Pesticide Applicators License for Missouri agricultural producers and will also count for recertification requirements by the state. The training will not certify for commercial application licenses. This training is open to producers of agricultural commodities, 18 years of age or older.
“This three-hour training program (reference manual included) will allow individuals to recertify or receive initial training to be licensed to purchase or use restricted-use pesticides for five years,” said Tim Schnakenberg, an agronomy specialist with University of Missouri Extension and instructor for these classes.
The reference manual can be shared among members of the same household. If a current edition (M87 printed 2007) of the Missouri Private Pesticide Applicator Reference Manual is already available to you, please bring it with you when you recertify,” said Schnakenberg.
