Description: We will be hosting an in-person training at the Johnston County Extension Office on February 27, 2020, at 4 pm. Paraquat training must be completed individually. Applicators must receive a 100% on the final assessment to obtain a completion certificate. Once completed the certificate will be good for 3 years. An applicator CANNOT apply paraquat under the supervision of someone else's license. 

New labeling of paraquat products requires that any person, prior to using paraquat, must be a licensed or certified NCDA&CS pesticide applicator and MUST SUCCESSFULLY COMPLETE THE NEW PARAQUAT TRAINING.

Online Training can be assessed online through the "How to Safely Use and Handle Paraquat-Containing Pesticides"  or by clicking this link.

Individuals that complete the online training must print out a copy of their completion certificate for their records. Individuals that attend the in-person training will receive a paper copy of their completion certificate for their records.

We are working on Spanish versions (Mexican Spanish and Puerto Rico Spanish) of the online training, but as of right now, this test is in English.

Paraquat training is NOT required to purchase paraquat products but is MANDATORY for all paraquat use activities (including mixing, loading, application, transportation, storage, disposal, cleaning pesticide equipment, etc.).

Pesticide Exam will be offered on March 18, 2020, at the Johnston County Ag Center. The exam will start at 1:00 pm. NCDA asks that you be present by 12:30 pm.

If you have any questions, please call our office at (919) 989-5380.
