Writer : Kay Ledbetter
COLLEGE STATION – Invasive grasses will be the topic of a July 5 webinar by the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service ecosystem science and management unit.
“King Ranch and Kleberg Bluestem Management” is the next in the Texas Range Webinar Series, scheduled on the first Thursday of each month from noon to 1 p.m., said Pete Flores, webinar coordinator in Corpus Christi.
Dr. Megan Clayton, AgriLife Extension range specialist in Corpus Christi, will lead the webinar.
“Invasive grasses can be very difficult to control,” Clayton said. “King Ranch and Kleberg bluestems are two of the more common undesirable grasses in pastures. This webinar will cover how these grasses respond to management techniques and strategies to prevent their spread.”
One Texas Department of Agriculture integrated pest management continuing education unit will be offered during this webinar, Flores said. Participants seeking CEUs must pay a $10 fee on the website. For all others, there is no fee.
