[AgriLife Today] Range, brush program set for July 7 in Brownwood
BROWNWOOD — The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service will conduct a range and brush management program beginning at 4 p.m. July 7 at the Brown County Fairgrounds, 4206 U.S. Highway 377 South in Brownwood.
Scott Anderson, AgriLife Extension agent in Brown County, said the needed rains this spring have brought a plethora of weeds to Texas pastures.
“We have had a really wet spring so most pastures are covered in weeds, many of which are toxic to livestock,” Anderson said. “Unwanted brush species continue to encroach and take over good grazing land. Some of the leading experts in the state will be making presentations to address these and other problems. So if you have questions concerning weeds, brush control, cattle insect pest management or aquatic weed control in your farm pond don’t miss this opportunity to learn from the pros.”
Topics and speakers include:
— Toxic Weeds, Dr. Robert Lyons, AgriLife Extension range specialist, Uvalde.
— Controlling Weeds in Farm Ponds, Peter Woods, AgriLife Extension program specialist, Bay City.
— Weed and Brush Herbicides, Ralph Porter, Dow AgroSciences, Abilene.
— Mistakes with Range Herbicides, Dr. Morgan Russell, AgriLife Extension range specialist, San Angelo.
— Pesticide Laws and Regulations, Anderson.
Six Texas Department of Agriculture continuing education units, two laws and regulations, one integrated pest management and three general, will be offered to licensed pesticide applicators.
Individual registration is $30 payable upon arrival for those who RSVP by July 1 and $40 thereafter. Fees include a catered meal. For more information or to RSVP, call the AgriLife Extension office in Brown County at 325-646-0386.
