WICHITA FALLS – A Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service Small Acreage Pasture Management meeting will be held Feb. 27 at the River Bend Nature Center, 2200 3rd St., Wichita Falls,.

The program, which includes a meal, will be from 6-7:30 p.m. and is free and open to the public, said David Graf, AgriLife Extension agriculture and natural resources agent for Wichita County.

Graf said this program will allow new and experienced landowners who have small acreage to ask questions about unfamiliar tasks and hear the latest information on things like sprayer calibration, proper pressure and nozzle tips, and how to properly use products that keep the environment safe.

“Our office gets many requests during the year on improving the grass in their small pasture or working on it to be more attractive,” he said. “They have questions on weed, mesquite and prickly pear control, including when, what and how to do those things correctly and effectively. This session is directed at those concerns.”

Session information will be provided by James Jackson, AgriLife Extension range program specialist in Stephenville.

He will discuss hands-on plant identification, control options for weeds and brush, and application techniques and equipment, as well as answer any questions.

For more information, contact Graf at 940-716-8610 or cdgraf@ag.tamu.edu.
