The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service will conduct the Pesticide Management and CEU Workshop from 8 a.m.-3 p.m. Dec. 5 at the Pecos County Civic Center, 1674 Airport Drive, Fort Stockton.
“Our agency has made this a district-wide event, because it’s been so well-attended over the past several years,” said Raymond Quigg, AgriLife Extension agent in Upton County. “The workshop offers participants a chance to hear some top speakers while earning Texas Department of Agriculture continuing education units.”

The two structural CEUs offered for commercial applicators will be one each in the laws and regulations and integrated pest management categories.
