COLLEGE STATION – How Grasses Grow will be the topic of the Aug. 1 natural resources webinar hosted by the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service ecosystem science and management unit.

The webinar is part of the Texas Range Webinar Series scheduled the first Thursday of each month from noon to 1 p.m., said Pete Flores, AgriLife Extension webinar coordinator in Corpus Christi.

Dr. Morgan Treadwell, AgriLife Extension range specialist, San Angelo, said nearly every single native, perennial grass species reproduces through vegetative reproduction or from below-ground buds.  

“This webinar will help you enhance your understanding of the fundamentals of grass development strategies and how potential above-ground disturbances can promote or hinder future vegetative production,” she said.

There is no fee. This webinar and others in the series can be accessed at https://naturalresourcewebinars.tamu.edu/. For more information on the webinars, contact Flores at pflores@ag.tamu.edu
