Texas Department of Agriculture defines a private pesticide applicator as “someone who uses or supervises the use of restricted-use or state-limited-use pesticides or regulated herbicides to produce an agricultural commodity on:
Personally owned property;
Property owned by his or her employer;
Property under his or her general control; or
The property of another person if applied without compensation, other than the trading of personal services between producers of agricultural commodities.”
An agricultural commodity is a plant or animal grown for sale, lease, barter, feed, or human consumption and animals raised for farm or ranch work. No license is required to apply general-use pesticides to produce agricultural commodities.
