Pesticide applicators who apply any restricted use pesticide on “a contractual or for hire” basis are classified as commercial applicators. Noncommercial applicators are those who apply restricted use pesticides only on lands owned or controlled by his/her employer or for a governmental agency or subdivision of the state. These applicators must be certified by the Nebraska Department of Agriculture in a variety of applicable categories. They then need to re-certify every three years.
Re-certification training in some categories will be offered in Valentine on March 20 at the Cherry County Extension Office at 9:00 AM CT. Location of the Extension Office is at the corner of 4th and Main Street in the old courthouse.
Initial certification training in several categories will be held in Valentine at the Cherry County Extension Office beginning at 8:30 AM CT on April 10. Please note that this is a change from some dates published earlier by the Pesticide Safety Education Program.
Pre-registration with the Nebraska Department of Agriculture is required. You should register on-line at pested.unl.edu at least ten working days in advance of the class you plan to attend. Program information booklets are available at the Extension Office. For more information call 800-627-7216.
