2020 South Texas Agriculture Symposium
April 14 @ 7:30 am - 12:30 pm
I hope that you are all staying safe and well. Our office is currently closed to the public and maintaining a skeleton crew through at least April 3rd. If you have a question, the best way to reach out is by email, firstname.lastname@example.org .
We are still offering our annual Agriculture Symposium this year on April 14th via webinar (see flyer below). It will be hosted through a link provided to all registrants the day before to watch from your home computer instead of going to a county host location (we will not be offering face to face programs at this time).
The cost of the symposium is $10 per person and through registration, you will be asked to provide the County Extension Office where you heard about the workshop (or where your land is, if you heard elsewhere). You will still receive 2 General CEUs for your pesticide applicator license and you will need to provide your number when you register. If you do not have your license handy, please click on the following TDA link and download the Ag Pesticide Applicators Currently Licensed Excel sheet (at the bottom of the page) and search for your information, or I can try to help you. https://www.texasagriculture.gov/RegulatoryPrograms/Pesticides/AgriculturalApplicators/PesticideAgriculturalApplicatorPublications.aspx
The link to register for the symposium is: https://agriliferegister.tamu.edu/ag and registration closes on April 12th at midnight.
Once the symposium is over, a survey will be pushed out through Survey Monkey.
Pesticide Licenses & CEU’s
We know many of you have questions about pesticide CEU’s and licensing. I have attached an update from Sid Miller that explains what TDA is doing to address the need for CEU’s and licensing. In short:
- Licensed applicators with expiring licenses or those needing CEU’s will be allowed to renew their license even if they have not met their CEU requirement for their current licensing period through December 31, 2020.
- Once the restrictions have been lifted and courses are scheduled again, applicators will be required to obtain their required CEUs for their respective license classification for each licensing period.
- They have also lifted the rule on how many credits you can take online for 2020.
Stay safe and Be well.
