COLLEGE STATION – There is more than one way to manage weeds in hayfields and pastures, and Dr. Larry Redmon, Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service state forage specialist, will discuss many of them during a Dec. 6 webinar.

The webinars are conducted monthly as a part of the AgriLife Extension’s ecosystem science and management unit series. Each webinar is scheduled from noon to 1 p.m., according to Brittany Grube, webinar coordinator.

Participants seeking Texas Department of Agriculture continuing education units must pay a $10 fee on the website. For all others, there is no fee, Grube said. Licensed agricultural pesticide applicators participating in this webinar can earn one continuing education unit in integrated pest management.

“I hope participants of the webinar will gain an appreciation of what weeds are and what they are not; and also of how weeds become a problem in hayfield and pasture environments,” Redmon said. “It is important they understand there is more than one way to manage weeds, and that they understand how to appropriately use herbicides to obtain cost-effective control of various weed and brush species.”

This webinar and others in the series can be accessed at http://naturalresourcewebinars.org. For more information on the webinars, contact Grube at Brittany.grube@agnet.tamu.edu.
