Private applicator training for farmers 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 on 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 (RUPs).

There is a $20 per person fee, which must be paid at the training. This 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 should be mailed to the State Plant Board after the training.

Those requiring a reasonable accommodation to participate or need materials in another format are asked to contact the Baxter County Cooperative Extension office at 870-425-2335 as soon as possible. Dial 711 for Arkansas Relay.
