Question Pesticides

We have been in business a few years now and we are looking to expand into weed control / pesticides intensely. Was trying to get certified to use pesticides ( in Tennessee ) and cannot seem to figure out how to do that down here. If anyone can help me with that it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Where is down here? I am right outside of New Orleans and I am taking the horticulture certification exam tomorrow, and am getting my pest license along with arboriculturist license in fall. Delgado community college has a great program!!!! If you end up there tell Rich I sent ya!!! Good luck.

Your state dept. of agriculture will have all the info you need to get certified and licensed. Hope your study and exam go well!
