The IR-4 Project is a unique partnership of government, land-grant universities and growers designed to increase pest control options (uses) for low-acreage crops commonly called specialty or minor crops. Work is done to obtain regulatory clearances for chemicals and biological agents used for crop protection on minor crops when registrants lack the economic incentives for investment.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I become a certified applicator?

Click Here

What are my options if I fail one or more exams?

1. An individual can take and fail an exam 2 times. After the 2nd time, he/she must receive additional training from some source before they can take the exam a 3rd or 4th time.

2. Unknown as to what training is available.  Finding/attending the training is the responsibility of the person needing it. It can come from "in-house", from industry, from UW or wherever. An apprenticeship would work, as long as the supervisor could document/verify the training. There is no hour requirement.

3. Wyoming does have a "direct supervision" regulation that allows a non-certified applicator to work under the direct supervison of a certified applicator. However, being supervised from Rapid City is not reasonable and we would not allow that under our regulations.
