The EPA requires all licensed applicators to be trained for the fumigant active ingredients they will be applying. For Paladin, the online training site link is located under the “Resources” tab in the "Links" section and can also be accessed through the EPA fumigant toolbox. Applicators in Florida must receive Paladin training in-person and cannot use this online training at this time.
Fumigation management plan
The EPA requires a Fumigant Management Plan for each Paladin® fumigant application. The templates (available under the “Resources” tab) have been designed specifically for use with Paladin® and will assist in collecting all label required information.
