Rangeland management seminar set for Jan. 5


Drought complicates range management, necessitating different strategies than normally executed on a yearly basis, according to a Texas AgriLife Extension Service specialist.

"Brush Management: What to Do and Not Do in a Drought" will be the topic of a webinar on Jan. 5, 2012, presented by Will Hatler, an AgriLife Extension rangeland program specialist in Stephenville.

This will be the first in the 2012 webinar series offered by AgriLife Extension's ecosystem science and management unit, according to Brittany Grube, graduate assistant and webinar coordinator.

The webinars, which offer a way to earn Texas Department of Agriculture continuing education units online, are scheduled from noon to 1 p.m. every first Thursday of the month, Grube said. This webinar, as well as those from the 2011 series, can be accessed at http://naturalresourcewebinars.tamu.edu.

The webinar presented by Hatler will qualify for one pesticide continuing education unit.

"Drought impacts the management of our rangelands and natural areas in many ways, especially during a severe drought like Texas experienced in 2011," Hatler said. "Brush management strategies during drought can be complicated by unusual conditions on the ground and in the target plant communities.

"The ability to select the proper techniques and timing, relative to the altered conditions on the ground, is critical to being successful," he said.

For more information on the webinars, contact Grube at Brittany.grube@agnet.tamu.edu.
