Private Pesticide Applicator Training Coming to Plattsburg Tomorrow

Pesticide applicator training is coming to Plattsburg Thursday.

The University of Missouri Extension is hosting private pesticide applicator training Thursday night from 6:00 until 9:00 at the Youth Building in Plattsburg.

Private pesticide applicator training at the University of Missouri involves the initial training and recertification of Missouri private pesticide applicators.

The extension office says the need for training in the application of pesticides is of high importance due to both the legal requirements and a real need for technical knowledge.

There is no charge for the training, but each farm should have a copy of the Private Pesticide Applicator Training Manual.

Applicators can bring a manual and family members can share your copy or you may purchase one for 12 dollars at the training session.
