General Farming Pesticide Applicator Training (PAT) courses offered

Dec. 27, 2013 | 0 comments

JUNEAU

Dodge County farmers whose pesticide applicators certification has expired or first-time applicators will want to register for one of three training sessions or for a self-study program in order to acquire their General Farming Private Applicator's License.

Three Pesticide Applicator Trainings will be held at the Dodge County Administration Building in Juneau on Wednesday, Feb. 5, Saturday, Feb. 15 and Friday, March 7. Each program runs from 9:00 a.m-3:30 p.m. The $40 registration fee includes class materials and a catered lunch. The self-study program registration is $30

Registration and fee payment for PAT classes or self-study must be done in person, at least one day prior to the training/testing date, at the Dodge County UW-Extension Office, 127 E. Oak Street, Juneau. Phone and mail registration for PAT are not acceptable.

About the course

The pesticide applicators training course will focus on the four steps of an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program:

1) Set Action Thresholds — Action is only necessary when pest populations or environmental conditions indicate that action must be taken;

2) Monitor and Identify pests — Not all insects, weeds and other organisms warrant control-some are even beneficial;

3) Prevention — Rotating crops, planting pest-resistant plants or other cultural practices;

4) Control — safely using the correct pest control product, at the correct time and with the proper placement.

The PAT program will also include a discussion of Pesticides and the Law, Reading the Pesticide Label, Safety and Emergencies, Calibrating Spray Equipment and other topics.

This course is offered by the University of Wisconsin-Cooperative Extension and the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP). Other private applicator training for Greenhouse & Nursery, Fruit Crops and Commercial Applicator training are offered by DATCP.
