You have to take the core exam and turf applicator test to become licensed in Missouri. If you call the Dept. of Agriculture they can tell you when upcoming test are. In order to maintain a pesticide applicators license you are required by the Dept. of Ag. to carry $500,000 of liability coverage. Yes you must be licensed in order to professionally apply chemicals, either restricted or non-restricted use.
