Private Pesticide Applicator Trainings Being Offered in
Southwest Missouri by MU Extension Starting Jan. 26

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. - Training sessions for a private pesticide applicator license are being offered by University of Missouri Extension specialists in most southwest Missouri counties starting Jan. 26.

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 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.
