The MU Extension is offering a Private Pesticide Applicator’s Training in Chillicothe on February 4th. Valerie Tate, MU Extension’s Field Specialist in Agronomy in Linn County, will hold the program at the Mildred Litton Community Center, starting at 9:00 am.
In order for farmers to purchase or apply restricted use pesticides on property owned or rented by them, they must have a private pesticide applicator’s license. Obtaining a private pesticide applicator’s license or renewing a license, requires attending a training class or viewing the training video. This program qualifies for first time certification and to renew certification.
There is no charge for the class, but each farm must have a copy of the Private Pesticide Applicator Training Manual. You are asked to bring your copy or plan to purchase one at the training session.
