Paraquat dichloride (paraquat) is a highly toxic herbicide registered by the EPA as a restricted use pesticide. Restricted use pesticides can only be mixed, loaded, and applied by licensed and certified pesticide applicators. Because of the exposure risks associated with paraquat-containing pesticides, either through the skin or through inhalation.

The following measures have been implemented to reduce the risk of harm when handling paraquat-containing pesticides by certified pesticide applicators:

  • Updates to paraquat-containing pesticide labels to emphasize its toxicity and to give proper warnings and cautions
  • More targeted training materials for paraquat users
  • Modifications to packaging for all non-bulk product containers of paraquat (less than 120 gallon) that now require a closed-system and no longer allow jar testing
  • - Restricting the use of all paraquat products to certified applicators only (i.e., prohibiting use by uncertified persons working under the supervision of a certified applicator).

Paraquat-specific training is now required for any certified applicator using a paraquat product. The training explains the updates to paraquat product labels, gives information on paraquat’s toxicity, and details the consequences of improper use. The training must be renewed every three years in order to continue to use paraquat-containing pesticides, and a certificate from the successful completion of the training must be maintained as part of an applicator’s records.

Please note that dealers and distributors can continue to sell their remaining paraquat products that do not meet the closed-system requirement until the stock is gone, and pesticide applicators may continue to use existing products without the new label updates.
