GALENA, Mo. -- Pesticide private applicator training sessions have been scheduled in Barry, Greene, Lawrence, Stone and Taney counties according to Tim Schnakenberg, a regional agronomy specialist with University of Missouri Extension.

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

The upcoming scheduled trainings do require registration.

Barry County: Monday, March 10, 1:30 p.m. or 6 p.m. in the Barry County Courthouse Commissioners Room, Cassville; $15 charge and preregistration is required by calling 417-847-3161.

Greene County: Tuesday, March 11, 1 p.m., Greene County Extension Center, located in the Springfield-Greene County Botanical Center, Springfield; $18 charge and preregistration is required by calling 417-881-8909.

Lawrence County: Thursday, March 13, 1 p.m., Lawrence County Courthouse, Third Floor Old Courtroom, Mt. Vernon; $15 charge per person, for information call 417-466-3102.

Taney County: Friday, March 14, 1 p.m., Taneyville Municipal Building, Taneyville; $15 charge per person, for information call 417-546-4431.

Stone County: Monday, March 17, 1:30 p.m. or 6 p.m., Stone County Annex (south side of square), Galena; $15 charge per person, for information call 417-357-6812.

This training is open to producers of agricultural commodities, 18 years of age or older, who need to receive a private pesticide license and those who need to recertify their license.  The license is good for five years.

There is a charge for the purchase of the training materials, payable at the door.  Some locations require a preregistration.

Schnakenberg says pesticide applicators should be looking at their licenses for the expiration date to see if they need to recertify or attend a training session if it has expired.  This type of training is required to recertify licenses.

These pesticide applicator training sessions are provided by the County Commissions and the University of Missouri Extension Councils.
