Cooperative Extension offers applicator pesticide training

By The Staff

Applicator pesticide training classes are scheduled for Tuesday, March 19 at 6:30 p.m., and Tuesday, April 9 at 1:30 p.m., the Anderson County Extension Service announced.
By law anyone using chemicals classified as restricted use must have a valid private applicator certification card, according to the news release.
The only way to keep this card current is to attend pesticide update training on proper use and handling.
Proper use and handling safety of agriculture chemicals makes both economic and personal health sense.
While many of our newer farm chemicals are both human and environmentally safer, they require close attention to management for them to do this job; besides, proper use and handling is the law.
