The utilization of regulated herbicides is regulated and allowed to be used by pesticide private applicators. Private applicators are required to obtain Continuing Education Units (CEUs) to maintain their licenses. Regulated herbicides are designated by the Texas Department of Agriculture. If used as directed or in accordance with widespread and commonly recognized practice, these herbicides require additional restrictions to prevent a hazard to desirable vegetation caused by drift or an uncontrolled application.
