The Coffee County Extension office will be holding its yearly Restricted Use Pesticide (RUP) private applicator training and testing Friday, Feb. 26, beginning at 9 a.m. at the Coffee County Extension office in New Brockton.
The RUP license is for anyone who wishes to purchase restricted use pesticides for use on land they personally own or rent, not for commercial applications. RUP licenses are valid for 3 years and must be renewed by testing every 3 years.
The cost of the RUP training and testing is $20. The license fee is $25 and paid to the Alabama Department of Agriculture and Industries. Anyone who would like to attend the training and testing should register by calling the Coffee County Extension office at 334-894-5596. COVID-19 safety procedures will be followed.
