Changes are coming for farmers and ranchers with a pesticide applicator license, according to the Wilson County Office of the Texas AgriLife Extension Service. Starting at the beginning of 2014, farmers and ranchers will have to go to a testing center after the training. They will not be able to complete the training and testing in one location.

The Wilson County Extension Office will still be doing the trainings but applicators will have to schedule a testing date in San Antonio or surrounding cities with the Texas Department of Agriculture. For those wanting to get a pesticide applicator license, now is the time.

Wilson County is conducting a Private Applicator License Training and Testing Thursday, Dec. 19, at the Wilson County Annex III in the Extension training rooms located at 1103 Fourth St. in Floresville.

Registration begins at 8 a.m. with training to start promptly at 8:30 a.m. The training will last until noon, at which time a short lunch break will be taken. The testing will begin promptly at 1 p.m. Participants should bring a calculator and photo ID to the training.

The Texas Department of Agriculture requires producers to acquire a license if they are to purchase, apply, and or supervise the use of these pesticides. This program is for persons who do not currently have a private applicator certificate or license, for those who have a license which expired at least one year ago and want to retest, and for persons who want to upgrade their certificate to a license.

After the producer acquires the license, the person must also acquire 15 continuing education hours within the five-year period in order to re-certify. Continuing education unit hours are available at various functions, seminars, farm shows, and field days conducted by Texas AgriLife Extension Service. Hours are also available through Internet courses.

There is a $20 registration fee payable at the door the day of the training. Lunch will be provided. You must also purchase the study materials for this course and they are available in the Extension Office for $40.

To register or for more information, come by the office or call 830-393-7357.
