Current Regulatory Flexibilities due to COVID-19
Pesticide Applicator Training and Testing
- The Illinois Department of Agriculture and the University of Illinois Extension created an online testing process for applicators who need a new or renewed pesticide license. Information for online testing can be found on the IDOA website. The Department relies on the integrity of the agricultural community and industry to safeguard the examination. Cheating, copying, theft of the exam or any other activity compromising the examination is grounds for license revocation.
Livestock Management Facilities Act (LMFA)
- The Illinois Department of Agriculture Bureau of Environmental Programs has issued guidance on perimeter sampling at livestock facilities for the 3rd quarter of 2020.
