UMass Pesticide Education Program
PLEASE NOTE: If you are planning to take your pesticide exam in 2014 you will have to purchase the 3rd edition of the Core Manual and 2014 Massachusetts Core Supplement. We are currently selling only the 2nd edition of the Core Manual and 2000 Massachusetts Core Supplement. The new versions of these documents will be available for sale through the UMass Extension bookstore on December 1, 2013.
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.
