Licensed private pesticide applicators can buy and use restricted-use pesticides in their farming operations after completing this training. Private applicators needing recertification in 2017 should have or will receive a letter notifying them from the Nebraska Department of Agriculture and their local Nebraska Extension Office. The Department of Ag letter includes a bar code, which eliminates the need to complete the standard NDA application form for those wanting to recertify.
