Chemical Brush and Weed Treatment Basics will be the topic of the July 6 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, AgriLife Extension webinar coordinator in Corpus Christi.

James Jackson, AgriLife Extension range program specialist, Stephenville, will be the presenter.

“This webinar will review the proper techniques for mixing herbicides, calibrating sprayers and conducting stem and cut-stump treatments to control noxious brush plants,” Jackson said.

One general Texas Department of Agriculture continuing education unit will be offered during this webinar, Flores said. Participants seeking Texas Department of Agriculture continuing education units must pay a $10 fee on the website. For all others, there is no fee.

This webinar and others in the series can be accessed at http://naturalresourcewebinars.tamu.edu.    For more information on the webinars, contact Flores at Pete.Flores@ag.tamu.edu.
