The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service is holding the annual Tri-County Producer and Landowner Symposium on Jan. 28 from 8 a.m. to noon on the Zoom meeting platform. The cost is $15, and preregistration is required.
There are three Texas Department of Agriculture continuing education units available, two general and one integrated pest management.
“This program goes over four extremely important topics for all livestock producers – weed management, fence law, soil fertility and brush control,” said Travis Bell, AgriLife Extension agriculture and natural resources agent for Concho County. “Three of these topics also come with CEUs for anyone with a private pesticide applicator license.”
Scheduled topics and speakers are:
- Weed Management in Small Grains – Reagan Noland, Ph.D., AgriLife Extension agronomist, San Angelo.
- Fence Law in Texas – Tiffany Dowell Lashmet, AgriLife Extension agriculture law specialist, Amarillo.
- Impact of Soil Fertility on Pesticide Performance – Vanessa Corriher-Olson, Ph.D., AgriLife Extension forage specialist, Overton.
- West-Central Texas Brush Control – James Jackson, Alligare range and pasture specialist, Stephenville.
Upon completion of registration and payment, participants will receive an email from email@example.com, Bell said. That email will contain two PDF attachments, a receipt and registration confirmation. The instructions on how to access the online series will be at the bottom of the registration confirmation.
