WICHITA FALLS – A Small Acreage Pasture Management program will be offered on April 10 by the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service at the Winfield United Warehouse, 1911 Sheppard Access Road in Wichita Falls.

The program, which includes a meal, will be from 6-7:30 p.m. and is open to the public, said David Graf, AgriLife Extension agriculture and natural resources agent for Wichita County. The cost is $10 for the meal.

Graf said this is the second session on this subject. After the first meeting in February, participants indicated there was a need for another program.

“I had one attendee tell me, ‘Now that I can better evaluate my pasture and I’ve had a chance to apply some of the points on sprayer technique, a second session will help me with questions more specific to my site and my sprayer,’” Graf said.

Speakers will include Graf; James Jackson, AgriLife Extension range program specialist in Stephenville; and Dr. James Rogers, Samuel Roberts Noble Foundation associate professor, Ardmore, Oklahoma.

The presentations will cover grass and pasture improvements, including planting, variety selection and fertilization; weed control plans for mesquite and prickly pear; and sprayer techniques for proper coverage, including surfactants, nozzles and pressure changes.

For more information, contact the AgriLife Extension office in Wichita Falls at 940-716-8610.
