Private Pesticide Applicator Trainings in Greene
and Surrounding Counties Offered by MU Extension

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — Private pesticide applicator training sessions are being offered in Greene and surrounding counties by University of Missouri Extension at varied times of day starting Feb. 8.

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.

Many commonly used pesticides require a private applicator license. These commonly used pesticides include Grazon P+D, Tordon 22K, Surmount, Mustang Max, Warrior II, and many others.

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 field specialist with University of Missouri Extension and instructor for these classes.
