Vanessa Corriher-Olson, Ph.D., Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service forage specialist, Overton, will give an overview of weeds and control options in coastal Texas hay and pastures.

Fertilization, weed control and pest management will be critical to maximizing forage production this year.

Utilizing herbicide applications properly and timely will help efficacy rates, and scouting for pests like fall armyworms and grasshoppers and acting quickly when they near thresholds could save crops.

Cost is $10 and one continuing Texas Department of Agriculture education unit in the general category will be offered to those who register. Registration is online at http://tinyurl.com/y8eapnu6 and the deadline is noon July 13.

Attendees must be registered to receive a meeting link.
