This meeting will have 2 CEU Hours for Commercial, Non-Commercial & Private Applicators (1 hour General and 1-hour IPM).

If you are seeking CEU credit hours, bring your current pesticide license with you to the event and register 30 minutes before the meetings begin.

There is no fee to attend. Lone Star Ag Credit will sponsor the meal for this program.
