MDARD Updates, Simplifies Registered Pesticide Applicator Forms

Program contact: Lauren Gott, 517-420-1865

Effective today, the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development (MDARD) simplified the application process for registered pesticide applicators/technicians. MDARD has combined the application form and the verifiable training form into one document, so applicants will only need to submit a single form. This change will make the application process simpler for applicants and speed up the MDARD approval process. The updated form can be found here.

Helpful reminders for registered pesticide applicators:

  • You are not considered a registered pesticide applicator and will not receive a credential until MDARD receives your application and fee.
  • Pesticide application companies utilizing registered applicators need to have an approved trainer and training program.
  • Registered applicators in the two-week training period must provide the Two-week Training Notification form before applying pesticides.
