Private Pesticide Applicator License Renewal by March 31st

As March draws to a close farmers should make certain that they have attended the needed pesticide licensing recertification training if their private pesticide applicator license expires on March 31st 2010. In Ohio we have a two-part system for pesticide license renewal: you pay a renewal fee to the Ohio Department of Agriculture and you receive at least three hours of continuing education from OSU Extension. Only a few private pesticide recertification opportunities remain available across Ohio, and the dates will pass rapidly. They are listed at the Pesticide Education web site: http://pested.osu.edu/ then click on private applicator.

Farmers who want add a category, or new applicators, can do so by taking an exam at one of the many Ohio Department of Agriculture (ODA) testing locations listed at the web site linked from the OSU Pesticide Education website. You can register on-line or by calling ODA before attending a testing session. Their toll free number is 1 800 282-1955.

Private Pesticide Applicator Recertification Available

Two private pesticide applicator recertification sessions are available locally in 2010. A private pesticide applicator is a person who produces an agricultural commodity on property they own or rent or on their employer’s property and uses a restricted use pesticide. A private applicator must be recertified every three years to maintain an active license.

The first session will be held in January.
