Private Pesticide Applicator Training in Webster County Jan. 29

A private pesticide applicator training session will be offered at 6 p.m. on Jan. 29 at the Webster County Extension Center in Marshfield.

Pre-registration is required by Monday, Jan. 28. Persons interested in attending should call (417) 859-2044 to reserve a space or to make arrangements due to a disability.

Missouri law requires all purchasers and users of restricted-use pesticides to attend a training session to be certified for a private applicators license.

“This three-hour training program will allow individuals to recertify or receive initial training to be licensed to purchase or use restricted-use pesticides for five years,” said Brie Menjoulet, agronomy specialist with the University of Missouri Extension who will be teaching the class.

This training is open to producers of agricultural commodities, 18 years of age or older.

“Participants will be required to purchase the Private Pesticide Applicator Reference Manual,” said Menjoulet.

The manual is $12 and must be purchased at the time of training.

“The reference manual can be shared among members of the same household or close family so if a current edition (2007) of the reference manual is already available to you, please bring it with you when you recertify,” said Menjoulet

Training session may also be offered in surrounding counties. Contact your local MU Extension office to find the program nearest you.
