Effective mesquite control depends on spraying at the right time

“Getting Ready to Treat Mesquite” is the topic of the April 4 webinar hosted by the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service as a part of the Texas Range Webinar Series.

Honey mesquite can often become more abundant on rangelands than managers would prefer, according to Megan Clayton, Ph.D., AgriLife Extension range specialist in Corpus Christi.

Clayton, who will be the presenter during the webinar, said the time to start making chemical treatment applications is quickly approaching.

“But before you drag the sprayer out of the barn, it is important to understand the biology and management of mesquite to ensure you’re spraying at the right time to accomplish the best control,” she said. “This webinar will focus on characteristics of honey mesquite and chemical control options, including when and how to spray.”

This webinar is part of a series conducted monthly by the AgriLife Extension’s ecosystem science and management unit. Each webinar is scheduled from noon to 1 p.m., according to Brittany Grube, webinar coordinator.

Participants seeking Texas Department of Agriculture continuing education units must pay a $10 fee on the website. For all others, there is no fee, Grube said. Licensed agricultural pesticide applicators participating in this webinar can earn one integrated pest management Texas Department of Agriculture continuing education unit.

This webinar and others in the series can be accessed at http://naturalresourcewebinars.org. Continuing education credits for archived webinars will only be available for one month following the live version of the webinar, Grube said. After the month has passed, the webinar will still be available to watch but participants will not be able to register for or receive credits.

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