Pesticide Safety Education
The Pesticide Safety Education Program (PSEP),
managed jointly by the U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency (EPA) and NIFA, supports
educational programs for pesticide applicators
in the proper use of pest management technologies.
Extension programs at land grant institutions,
in conjunction with state regulatory agencies
that certify and license applicators, provide
these education programs.
PSEP is funded by the EPA, NIFA, and other
funds from state
governments, county governments, program
training fees, and federal competitive grants. NIFA administers the funds
and provides program leadership by managing
the national program connecting to the land-grant
institutions in each state, the District
of Columbia, and U.S. territories.
