The Iowa Legislature recently passed changes to the Iowa Code that will affect commercial, public, and private pesticide applicators. Previously, commercial, public, and private applicators had the option of paying one-year or three-year certification fees. Effective July 1, 2012, one-year certification fees are no longer available. All individual pesticide applicator certification fees will now cover three years. Certified pesticide applicators that currently pay one-year fees but are in a three-year qualification cycle will be eligible to pay the one-year certification renewal fee until the existing cycle expiration date.
