Thursday, May 29, 2014 is your best opportunity to acquire your Private Applicator License if you live in Bosque County. Pre-registration is essential as study material has to be ordered by that date. Acquiring this license will enable producers to purchase and use restricted-use chemicals such as Weedmaster, Grazon P & D, Tordon and other substances.
Registration deadline has moved to 5pm Tuesday, May 27th.
The course is sponsored by Bosque, Hill, Hood and Johnson Counties. The program will be held at the Meridian Civic Center on River Street in Meridian starting at 9:00 a.m. The course will last from 9:00 a.m. to 3 p.m., with testing at 1:30 p.m. by a Texas Department of Agriculture instructor. The cost of $60.00 includes the required study materials, snacks and a meal. For more information or to register, call David or Karen at the Bosque County Extension Office at 254-435-2331, or scroll down and register on this page.
The Private Applicator Training Course (Sec. 76.112 of the Texas Department of Agriculture Laws and Regulations) usually takes 4 (four) hours to complete. The Texas Department of Agriculture recommends that you purchase your study materials in advance to allow time for reviewing the manuals and worksheets, and complete the exercises before your training date to insure success on the examination.
Private Applicator licenses are renewed every 5 (five) years. Each licensed private applicator must obtain 15 (fifteen) CEUs within a 5 (five) year period including at least two credits in laws and regulations and two credits in integrated pest management to maintain their license
On an important side note, Bosque County is in desperate need of your prayers for rain.
