by Kay Ledbetter, Texas A&M AgriLife

Mesquite and Mixed Brush Herbicide Treatments will be the topic of the May 3 natural resources webinar conducted by the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service ecosystem science and management unit.

The webinar is 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.

Dr. Bob Lyons, ecosystem science and management associate department head and AgriLife Extension range specialist in Uvalde, will lead the webinar.

“Mesquite spray season is approaching,” Lyons said. “This webinar will deal with the various methods for managing mesquite including aerial and ground broadcast spraying, individual plant stem and leaf treatment techniques, mechanical options and prescribed burning.”

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