Paraquat (most commonly used as Gramoxone) will have a new label beginning as early as August 2019. The new label requires applicators to take a training every three years. Currently, the training is only available online. The link below is a PDF of a step-by-step tutorial made to guide someone through the online training. Paraquat Training Instructions. The training and assessment should take around 45 minutes to complete.
Also, under this new label, every applicator applying paraquat must have a pesticide applicator’s license. Applicators may no longer apply paraquat under the supervision of another certified applicator. Contact your local Clemson Extension office about opportunities to get a pesticide applicator’s license.
