The Pest Management and the Environment Program (PME) at Iowa State University has revised several training manuals for commercial pesticide applicators and certified handlers. The full-color training manuals are intended to provide Iowans with the basic understanding of safe and responsible pesticide use and the information needed to successfully pass the certification exams.


The updated Iowa Core Manual, IC 445, contains the core or basic information on state and federal laws and regulations; pest management; label comprehension; pesticides; safety; the environment; and equipment and application techniques.
