Each state has a Pesticide Safety Education Program (PSEP) and Oregon now has a newly reorganized program at Oregon State University (OSU). The College of Agricultural Sciences heard from you, the applicator/consultant community, and they responded by making an investment to expand and improve the educational offerings for pre-licensed and licensed pesticide applicators in Oregon.
