COVID-19 might have much of the world social distancing, but agricultural crops still must be planted, and producers still have regulations to follow.

“Texas A&M AgriLife efforts to help people with their pesticide recertification and auxin training continues,” said Dan Hale, Ph.D., associate director for ag and natural resources and Path to the Plate director. “We were already planning to offer these trainings online beginning this year within our AgriLife Extension county offices.
