COLLEGE STATION – “Working with Aerial Applicators” will be the topic of an Oct. 4 webinar, part of the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service’s ecosystem science and management unit series.
This webinar, presented by Will Hatler, AgriLife Extension weed and brush control program specialist in Stephenville, will detail all aspects of aerial applications, including when to use, how to prepare and what to expect from commercial applicators.
“Under the right circumstances, aerial application of herbicide can be the most efficient method of controlling undesirable vegetation,” Hatler said. “The target plant species and density, acreage to be treated and site topography will often dictate if an aerial treatment is the right option.”
The webinar is scheduled from noon to 1 p.m., according to Brittany Grube, graduate assistant and webinar coordinator. Only participants seeking Texas Department of Agriculture continuing education units must pay a $10 fee on the website.
Texas Department of Agriculture licensed agricultural pesticide applicators participating in this webinar can earn one continuing education unit – half in general and half in drift minimization.
