COLLEGE STATION – Soil, water and forage testing will be the topic of the Dec. 5 webinar conducted by the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service.

Dr. Tony Provin, AgriLife Extension soil chemist in College Station, will be discussing a variety of topics related to soil characteristics, fertilizer recommendations, forage nutritive value and toxicity concerns, and water quality in relation to agricultural operations.

Provin also will highlight important information about sample collection and what can be expected from sample results submitted to the Texas A&M University Testing Laboratory, http://soiltesting.tamu.edu.

This 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 general 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.
