The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service in Tom Green County is partnering with Angelo State University’s department of agriculture to conduct a Private Pesticide Applicator Training April 20 in San Angelo.
The training will be on the university campus in Room 250 of the Vincent Building, 2333 Vanderventer Ave. Registration begins at 12:30 p.m. The training will be from 1-5 p.m.
Josh Blanek, AgriLife Extension agent in Tom Green County, said the training is specifically for those seeking a Texas Department of Agriculture private applicator license, and is not a continuing education unit training.
The license is required to buy and apply restricted-use herbicides and pesticides, Blanek said.
“The Texas Department of Agriculture requires this training prior to being tested for a private applicator pesticide license, also issued through the agency,” Blanek said.
Individual registration is $50, due upon arrival. To ensure enough study materials are ordered, preregistration by April 13 is required. To preregister and for more information, contact the AgriLife Extension office in Tom Green County at 325-659-6522.
