Crop advisors are commonly known as crop consultants.
Certified crop advisors are exempt from certain responsibilities under the WPS if the pesticide application is completed and all of the following conditions are met:
- The crop advisor is certified or licensed as a crop advisor by a program acknowledged as appropriate in writing by the EPA, or a State or Tribal agency responsible for pesticide enforcement.
- The certification or licensing program must include pesticide safety training that has all the information required of WPS handlers as applicable depending on the date of training.
- Only crop advising tasks are performed in the treated area.
