Test Preparation for Private Pesticide Applicators

in East-Central and Southeast Iowa


Iowa State University has prepared a study guide to help you prepare to take the test to become a Private Pesticide Applicator. ("Certified private applicator" means a certified applicator who uses any pesticide which is classified for restricted use on property owned or rented by the applicator or the applicator's employer or, if applied without compensation other than trading of personal services between producers of agricultural commodities, on the property of another person. Iowa Code, Chapter 206.2) If you wish to fumigate, you must also pass the test for commercial fumigators; this is due to the great danger involved with fumigation.

The (study) manual is available at each Iowa State University Extension office at a cost of $25.00. Ask for CS-1 "Private Pesticide Applicator Manual (April 2019)." You may also order it directly here.

Testing dates and locations are scattered around the state throughout the year.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the Iowa State University Extension Office.
