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. Visit this link to register for training in Mercer County.

Also, in-person programs are scheduled for 2023. There will be a face-to-face program held in Mercer County on February 8 at the MU Extension office meeting room located at 505 South Steward Street in Princeton. The program will begin at 2:00 pm. There is no charge for the program, but you must preregister to attend by calling 660-895-5123.

Individuals who are certifying for the first time must possess a copy of the Missouri Private Pesticide Applicator Reference Manual. They may be purchased at the MU Extension website at this link
