PLEASE NOTE: There is a new 3rd edition of the Core Manual with a new MA Core Supplement (2014). You will need to use the new Core and Supplement for the pesticide exams that you will be taking. Others study materials have not changed in recent years but double check the order form and compare dates of the publications that you currently have.
Welcome to the University of Massachusetts Pesticide Education Program Web Site. This site has been created to provide accurate information regarding the regulation and use of pesticides in Massachusetts and throughout the country.
This site is intended for use by farmers, landscapers, exterminators, and any other pesticide users. It has also been designed to assist extension professionals in educating the public throughout Massachusetts and the entire United States. In addition, we hope that this site will provide an active and vital link between the University, the Public and the State and Federal agencies which regulate pesticide use.
