Maine Medical Marijuana Cultivation: Pesticide Use and Information

Pesticide Applicators License Required. Growers planning to use any pesticides (including all conventional, organic or ‘natural’ insecticides, rodenticides, weed-killers, fungicides, rooting hormones or other plant hormones) must have a Pesticide Applicators License from the Maine Board of Pesticides Control. Study materials can be purchased from the University of Maine Cooperative Extension Pest Management Office. Testing can be scheduled at Cooperative Extension Offices. Most people study and pass exams on their own, but trainings are sometimes offered to assist.

To view and comment on the draft "Best Management Practices for Pests" document go to the Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry IPM website. 
Deadline for comments extended to May 1, 2015.
