Supplement to the Pennsylvania Pesticide Applicator Certification Core Manual
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency produced a National Pesticide Applicator Certification Core Manual that states are encouraged to use. Pennsylvania is now using this manual, but it has been renamed the Pennsylvania Pesticide Applicator Certification Core Manual. One of the major differences between this manual and the previous Pennsylvania core manual is that the new manual does not contain chapters on insects, weeds, plant diseases, or vertebrates. However, these chapters contain important information for private applicators, and for commercial and public applicators in a few categories. Specialists at Penn State have reviewed and updated these chapters. This information was then combined into this supplement. Some questions on the certification examinations will be taken from this material.
