COLLEGE STATION – “Range Herbicides 101 – What Are They? What Are the Laws and Regulations Concerning Them?” will be the topic of a Sept. 6 webinar.

Part of a seminar series scheduled by the Texas AgriLife Extension Service’s ecosystem science and management unit, this webinar will be presented by Dr. Barron Rector, AgriLife Extension range specialist in College Station.

Rector said the webinar will address major herbicides used in rangeland brush and weed control in Texas. Information on an herbicide label, what the herbicide is used for, and why herbicide use regulations and laws exist will be discussed.

The webinar is scheduled from noon to 1 p.m., according to Brittany Grube, graduate assistant and webinar coordinator. Only participants seeking Texas Department of Agriculture continuing education units must pay a $10 fee on the website. This program will offer one laws and regulations unit.

This webinar, and others in the 2011 and 2012 series, can be accessed at http://naturalresourcewebinars.org. For more information on the webinars, contact Grube at Brittany.grube@agnet.tamu.edu .
