Private Pesticide Applicator Training - Buffalo


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).

Registration: Pre-register one week prior to each session as materials will be needed to be copied.  Register online with a credit card or contact your local MU Extension Office. 

Fee: $ 25.00; All participants will receive handouts and a new manual at the training.

Training will be provided by Terry Halleran, Regional Agronomy Specialist. Questions can be addressed at your local MU Extension Office.
