New Pesticide Safety Manual Now Available

The newly revised Right-of-Way, Category 6 manual is available for Iowa’s commercial and public pesticide applicators. The 98-page manual covers the noxious weeds and other weed species common in Iowa’s right-of-way environments and the various strategies used in managing these weeds.

The manual was written with full input from subject matter experts across Iowa. Complete with full-color pictures, this descriptive study guide not only will assist people in preparing to take the Category 6 examination, but also will serve as a reference for applicators.

The new Right-of-Way, Category 6 study manual is now available through Iowa State University Extension and Outreach. Publication cost is $20.00 and it can be ordered from the Extension Online Store. Further, new Category 6 certification exams will be used at all Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship testing locations beginning Monday, Feb. 9.
