Brush identification, control topic of July 7 webinar

by Kay Ledbetter, Texas A&M AgriLife

Brush Identification and Control Measures will be the name of a July 7 natural resources webinar conducted by the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service ecosystem science and management unit.

The webinar is a part of the Texas Range Webinar Series scheduled the first Thursday of each month from noon to 1 p.m., said Pete Flores, webinar coordinator in Corpus Christi.

This month’s presenter is Dr. Bob Lyons, AgriLife Extension range specialist and Texas A&M University ecosystem science and management associate department head, Uvalde.

“Different species of brush are troublesome to landowners across Texas,” Lyons said. “Often times, the focus of webinars or presentations are on the main species, such as honey mesquite. This webinar will cover a number of invasive brush species and explain the best ways to control these plants on rangelands.”

The webinar is approved for one Texas Department of Agriculture continuing education unit in the integrated pest management category for pesticide applicators.

Participants seeking Texas Department of Agriculture continuing education units must pay a $10 fee on the website. For all others, there is no fee, Flores said.
