University of Missouri Extension to Hold Private Pesticide Applicator Training

Farmers who want to purchase or apply restricted use pesticides on property owned or rented by them, must have a private pesticide applicator license. Currently there are two options to obtain certification or renew a license.

The first option is a training session via Zoom. Anyone can join these meetings from their home computer. Go to and search for private pesticide applicator training to find the date and time of the next virtual training event. Also, in person programs are scheduled for 2024 and can be found and registered for online at the same website.

There will be two face-to-face programs held in Scotland County on February 6th at the Scotland County Fire Department at 104 North Washington Street, Memphis, Missouri 63555. The programs will begin at 10:00AM and 2:00PM. There is no charge for the programs, but you must preregister to attend by calling 660-465-7255 or preregistering online. In the event of poor weather conditions that lead to school closings, please contact the MU Extension Office in the county you plan to attend the training in to confirm if the event will still be held.

It is recommended that each farm operation possess a copy of the Missouri Private Pesticide Applicator Reference Manual. They may be purchased at the MU Extension website, at:

For more information and ADA accommodations, please contact Nick Wesslak, Field Specialist in Agronomy by email at or call 573-769-2177. MU Extension programs are open to all.
