A restricted-use pesticide review workshop for private and commercial applicators is set for March 12 at the Berrien County Michigan State University Extension office, 1737 Hillandale Road, Benton Harbor.
Registration and refreshments begin at 8:30 a.m. The pest management review will be from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. The Pesticide Applicator Core Manual is available online at the MSU Extension Bookstore for $30, plus tax.
A fee of $25 covers the review session given by MSU Extension staff. The fee can be paid in advance by cash or by check payable to MSU. To register, call the Berrien County MSU Extension office at 269-927-5674 by March 6, or register online.
An open exam period is scheduled in which all private and commercial exams will be administered by Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development staff from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Southwest Michigan Research and Extension Center.
Please note this will run at the same time as the restricted-use pesticide review workshop. MDARD procedures require that applicants pay a separate exam fee ($50 private; $75 commercial) by check or money order — no cash — at the exam site.
Identification and renewal notices (for recertification exams) also are needed to take the test. No exams will be given after 2 p.m.
A person with disabilities may request accommodations by calling the Berrien County MSU Extension office by March 5.
