“Producers or landowners who apply restricted use pesticides to their properties must be trained and licensed to do so,” said Gary Pastushok, AgriLife Extension agriculture and natural resources agent, Williamson County.

Pastushok said all necessary training instruction, as well as printed materials and an interactive question-and-answer time, will be provided.

“We will also provide time for attendees to prepare for and take the private applicator exam,” he said.
