Private pesticide certification     Send a link to a friend

By John Fulton

[DEC. 7, 2004]  This year Logan County will only have one PSEP clinic, due to the low number due to retest in the Pesticide Safety Education Program. Our date is Dec. 15, from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Extension office.

Preregistration is required, but no fee will be charged. You may register by calling the office, sending an e-mail to fultonj@uiuc.edu or on the Internet at http://web.extension.uiuc.edu/cie2/offices/

Certification is needed to purchase and apply restricted-use pesticides on ground that you own or operate. With the necessity of insecticide use on first-year corn, it is recommended that all farm operators be certified.

This certification does not qualify for licensing pertaining to public applications, such as schools, churches, roadsides or others. Commercial not-for-hire or public licensing through the commercial program is required for these uses.

More information on categories and requirements is available by contacting the Extension office at 732-8289.
