Private Pesticide Applicator Workshops

Do you need to become a licensed private applicator??

  • Are you applying restricted-use pesticides to your land to produce an agricultural commodity?
  • Are you applying restricted-use pesticides to grain bins, ponds or around livestock on your farm?

If “yes”, then you NEED to become a licensed private applicator.

Licensing is required to ensure that applicators responsibly use restricted-use pesticides.

Several workshops are scheduled to help participants prepare for the pesticide applicator test. Classes are scheduled for Wednesday, November 2 from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon at the Darke County Extension Learning Center, 603 Wagner Avenue, Greenville, Ohio, or Tuesday, November 29 from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. or 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. in the second floor meeting room of the Central Services Building at 220 W. Livingston St. in Celina, Ohio.

This workshop will provide participants with the necessary study materials to prepare to take the core section of the Private Pesticide Applicator test. The core section of the test covers the basics of pesticide application from reading the label to safety and environmental protection. The class will also review the steps in determining rate calculations. Interested participants must pre-register by calling Darke County OSU Extension at 937-548-5215 or Mercer County OSU Extension at 419-586-2179.
