Licensing Requirements

License Title:



A private applicator is a person applying pesticides to produce an agricultural product (including forestry, nursery or greenhouse) on land owned or rented by the person or the person's employer. A person making any other kind of pesticide application is considered to be a commercial applicator (except for persons applying general-use pesticides in or around their own home). Certification is required for private applicators who apply restricted use pesticides.

Examples of private applicators include a farmer applying pesticides to his crops on his owned or rented land or an employee of that farmer doing the same or greenhouse and nursery workers making pesticide applications on the land or in the greenhouses of their employer.

Certification is based on results of a written exam which measures whether a person has the necessary knowledge to properly use or purchase restricted-use pesticides in Wisconsin.
