The event will feature speakers discussing topics pertinent to row crop production in Milam and surrounding counties.

There will be 3.0 hours CEU (2 Gen, 1 IPM) offered for TDA Private Pesticide Applicator License holders. The session will cost $10 per participant and will include morning coffee and donuts. Pre-registration is not required. Please contact the Milam County Extension Office at 254-697-7045 for more details.

Special thanks to sponsors Thorndale Volunteer Fire Department, who has donated the use of the facility, and Capital Farm Credit, who will provide the morning coffee and donuts.
