UPW Using Pesticides Wisely Training – All Applicators Must Be Trained This Year.

Pesticides Wisely Training – ALL Applicators Must Be Trained This Year All applicators driving the tractor/sprayer applying these herbicides (Engenia, FeXapan, Tavium and XtendiMax) must attend Using Pesticides Wisely during 2021 prior to using these products. As mandated by federal law, one must hold a private or commercial pesticide license to apply these products. Labels specifically state β€œTo be certified applicators only; NOT to be used by uncertified persons working under the supervision of a certified applicator, except that uncertified person may transport containers.”
All persons in charge of in-season applications of Enlist or Enlist One in Enlist cotton or soybeans must attend Using Pesticide
Trainings prior to using these products.


Paraquat Training All applicators applying paraquat will have to have a private or commercial pesticide license. They are also required to complete an EPA-approved training module before applying. You can click https: https://www.epa.gov/pesticide-worker-safety/paraquat-dichloride-training-certified-applicators to go to the EPA-Approved Paraquat Training site. Be sure to print the Certificate of Completion for your records. If you completed this paraquat training last year then it is good for 3 years.
GA Pesticide License The private pesticide license can be obtained online and I suggest for those needing it to go ahead and get it done. Please call our office for more information or go to our webpage to find out more. You may also click on the link below to see the process to follow https://site.extension.uga.edu/bullochag/files/2021/02/Step-by-Step_PAT_Instructions.pdf and for information in regard to obtaining the private pesticide license. If applicators go ahead and get their license before the UPW Trainings begin, they can get those credit hours from the meeting applied to their license. There is a cost of $25.00 for the private
pesticide license.
