Private applicator training for farmers available Thursday

Local farmers, ranchers, and other agricultural producers who wish to renew an expiring pesticide license or receive a first time private pesticide applicator license will have the opportunity to receive the required training Thursday. The training will be held at the Baxter County Fairgrounds Educational Building in Mountain Home Thursday evening at 6:00.

Pesticide Applicator Training is a two-hour course to recertify Arkansas agricultural producers who wish to purchase and apply Restricted Use Pesticides (RUP’s).

There is a $10 fee per person, which must be paid at the training. The fee is not related to the licensing fees charged by the State Plant Board. The fee for the license is $10 for one year or $45 for five years, which can be mailed to the State Plant Board after the training.

For more information about Private Applicator Training, contact the University of Arkansas Division of Agriculture Cooperative Extension Service office at 425-2335.
