“How to Manage Mixed Brush in Fence Lines and Pastures” will be the topic for the June 4 webinar by the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service ecosystem science and management unit.
The webinar is a part of 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.
Presenter for this webinar is James Jackson, AgriLife Extension program specialist in Stephenville.
“Outside of the initial investment in the land itself, the fence lines are often the highest cost item on an individual’s property, ranging from $12,000–$24,000 per mile, depending on the type of fence,” Jackson said. “In this webinar, the focus will be on different methods for maintaining newly built fence lines to protect your investment and clearing out fence lines that have had a lack of care in the past.”
Participants seeking Texas Department of Agriculture continuing education units must pay a $10 fee on the website. For all others, there is no fee, Flores said. Licensed agricultural private pesticide applicators participating in this webinar can earn one integrated pest management unit.
