The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service in Austin, Fayette, Washington, and
Colorado Counties have teamed to offer a series of educational programs which will
assist new landowners with the concept of agriculture production and rural living.
The events are open to anyone – not just new landowners.
The April program will address Weed and Brush Control on April 20th, 2018. Attendees
will learn why we have weeds and brush, integrated management practices,
the proper use of herbicide on weeds and brush, how to avoid herbicide use, identification
of common weeds and brush species, and how to avoid weed and brush issues
in the future. There will also be a sprayer calibration demonstration and well as
a brush treatment demonstration. The program will be held at the Colorado County Fairgrounds, 1146 Crossroads
Blvd, Columbus. Cost is $20 per person unless you have signed up for the series. Registration is at
1:00pm and the program will run 1:30 – 5:00pm. Three (3) CEUs (2 Gen, 1 IPM) will be provided to licensed
pesticide applicators. For more information, call 979-732-2082.
