COLLEGE STATION – “How Herbicides Work” is the topic of the May 2 webinar hosted by the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service as a part of the Texas Range Webinar Series.

This presentation will focus on the effect of the herbicides in the plant and soil environment, according to Dr. Paul Baumann, AgriLife Extension state weed specialist.

Baumann, who will conduct the webinar, said there are various mode-of-action categories that individual herbicides belong to and various characteristics of these products. The symptoms of damage also will be presented to help attendees recognize possible herbicide injury.

This webinar is part of a series conducted monthly by the AgriLife Extension’s ecosystem science and management unit. 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 integrated pest management Texas Department of Agriculture continuing education unit.

This webinar and others in the series can be accessed at http://naturalresourcewebinars.tamu.edu/. Continuing education units for archived webinars will only be available for one month following the live version of the webinar, Grube said. After the month has passed, the webinar will still be available to watch, but participants will not be able to register for or receive credits.
