NMSU Extension offices host private applicator license renewal workshop in Clovis

CLOVIS, N.M. ¬- New Mexico State University's Cooperative Extension Service offices in Curry and Roosevelt counties are hosting a joint private applicator license renewal workshop Dec. 14 in Clovis. Anyone needing to renew their New Mexico Department of Agriculture pesticide license is invited to attend.

A private applicator license is required for private landowners to apply restricted-use pesticides, which are controlled by the NMDA.

"According to New Mexico law, private applicator license holders must obtain five Continuing Education Units every five years in order to renew their license. This workshop meets those demands," said Patrick Kircher, agricultural Extension agent for Roosevelt County. "This workshop provides general education in New Mexico pesticide law and regulations, record keeping, small vertebrate control, weed management and integrated pest management."

There is no fee for the workshop. There is a $15 fee to renew a license with the NMDA.

The workshop is from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. and will be held at Clovis Community College, Room 609.

For more information about the workshop, contact Stan Jones, Extension county program director for Curry County, at 575-763-6505, or Kircher at 575-356-4417.
