Gramoxone/paraquat Training Required Before Use

Gramoxone/paraquat Training Required Before Use
Anyone using Gramoxone, Firestorm, Helmquat, Parazone, and other paraquat products must complete an EPA-mandated training before application. After November 14, 2019, the EPA requires companies to have newly labeled products on the market.
 
The following are items related to the new label for paraquat products:
  • Only certified applicators, who successfully completed the paraquat-specific training, can mix, load or apply paraquat
  • No longer allow application “under the direct supervision” of a certified applicator
  • Restricting the use of all paraquat products to certified applicators only
  • EPA required video training link
  • Users must create an account with username and password
  • Applicators must repeat training every three years
For additional information and FAQs about the paraquat training go to the EPA Paraquat Dichloride Training for Certified Applicators website.
