Do you have someone who needs to get a Category L Turf and Ornamentals pesticide license? If so, we will be teaching a Turf and Ornamentals Test Preparation Class on August 4 from 8am-12pm. We will cover the material included in the Turf and Ornamental book. The cost is $10.00. Call our office at (828) 697-4891 to register.

The NC Dept of AG will provide testing opportunities at the Mountain State Fairgrounds on August 10 and November 9.

Order the books (you need Core and T and O) and register for testing here .

Pesticide License Basics

Every pesticide licensee has to take the Core test. Turf and Ornamentals licensees must take the Turf and Ornamental test. You will need both books and they can be ordered here


Landscapers and Turf Managers - A Turf and Ornamental Category L Pesticide License requires 10 hours of recertification per 5 year period.

Plant Nursery Producers (farmers) - A Private Applicator License V/X requires 2 hours each Private (V - Safety, X - Specialty) per 3 years

Total credits CANNOT be earned during the same calendar year for Category L. This rule DOES NOT apply to Farmers (Private Applicators).
