COLLEGE STATION – A landowner or manager contemplating brush management needs to first learn from history in order to properly plan management systems, according to a Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service range specialist.
Dr. Wayne Hanselka, professor and AgriLife Extension range specialist emeritus, will present “The Unintended Consequences of Brush Management” in a Nov. 7 webinar.
“Since the inception of removing unwanted vegetation from rangeland, there have been unplanned responses, both positive and negative,” said Hanselka. “These unintended consequences have accompanied the evolution of vegetation manipulation through the eras of eradication, control and management. Application, as well as methodology, has had its surprises.”
Hanselka’s webinar is part of the Texas Range Webinar Series conducted monthly by AgriLife Extension’s ecosystem science and management unit. Each webinar is scheduled from noon to 1 p.m., according to Pete Flores, webinar coordinator in College Station.
Participants seeking Texas Department of Agriculture continuing education units must pay a $10 fee on the website. For all others, there is no fee, Flores said. Licensed agricultural private pesticide applicators participating in this webinar can earn one integrated pest management 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 be available for only one month following the live version of the webinar. 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.
