As of November 14, 2019, registrants of paraquat containing products (Gramoxone, Firestorm, Helmquat, Parazone and others) were required to have newly labeled products on the market. Paraquat training is now mandated by the US EPA for all certified applicators who intend to load, apply, mix or handle paraquat. Only licensed pesticide applicators can legally apply paraquat products and direct supervision is no longer permitted. Training is required every three years and may be completed online here: paraquattraining.com (approx. 60 min) or by attending an in-person paraquat training.
If you are interested in attending an in-person training, contact our office at 740-461-6136.
