A private pesticide applicator training class is 6-8:30 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 26. 

The University of Missouri Texas County Extension will offer a private pesticide applicator training class from 6‑8:30 p.m., Tuesday, Jan. 26, in the conference room at the Lone Star Annex on Main Street in Houston.  

The training is open to all producers of agricultural commodities, 18 years of age or older. The class will allow individuals to recertify or receive initial training to be licensed to purchase or use restricted-use pesticides for five years.

There is $3 cost for the training, and $12 cost for the required M87 Private Pesticide Applicator Reference Manual, payable at the class. The manual may be shared among members of the same household or close family.

If a current edition (2007 or later) of the manual is already available to you, please bring it with you when you recertify. You will not be required to purchase another copy of the manual in this situation.

If you would like to attend, call the Extension office in Houston at 417‑967-4545 or send an email to adeyt@missouri.edu, so organizers can make sure there are enough manuals for everyone. 

Missouri law requires all purchasers and users of restricted-use pesticides to attend a training session to be certified for a private applicators license. This training class is provided as a cooperative effort of the Texas County Commission and the University of Missouri Texas County Extension Council.
