Welcome

Welcome to the Texas Department of Agriculture’s eApply system. This system gives the applicant an opportunity to improve the processing-time of a license application by bypassing the postal service and Comptroller Payment Processing System (Lockbox). eApply also gives the applicant the convenience of paying fees via credit/debit card or electronic check.

The eApply system is currently available for registering:

  • Plant Quality Nursery Floral.
  • Weights and Measures Devices (Fuel Pumps and Scales).
The Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA) will be rolling out additional license types in the future. To apply for another license type, please click here.
