    Description:

    Initial training and recertification of private pesticide applicators. Trains in methods of safe and proper use of agricultural pesticides on farmland.
    Missouri law requires all purchasers and users of restricted-use pesticides to attend a training session to be certified for a private applicators license. Those obtaining a private applicators license may not accept payment if spraying pesticides for someone else. Due to the new regulations, this training will not qualify you for the use of Dicamba. You must attend one of the statewide training session specific to Dicamba. Missouri law is currently under review and will possibly change in the near future with stricter requirements.
    During this training, participants will learn about safe handling of pesticides, proper mixing, calibration techniques, environmental ramifications of improper mixing or careless application, chemical breakdown of pesticides in the environment, what records are needed, pesticide formulations, personal protective wear and how to clean it, pesticide storage, common MO pests, and integrated pest management (IPM).
    Additional Ag program updates will be provided by assigned specialist in livestock, engineering, economics and agronomy.
