The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service will present the webinar “Drift Management: Wind, Weather, and Whether or Not to Spray” on Sept. 1 as part of its ongoing Rangeland, Wildlife and Fisheries Management, RWFM, Stewardship Series.

The event will run from noon to 1 p.m. Cost is $35, and advance registration is required by Aug. 29. Participants must register at  hhttps://tx.ag/RWFMSeptWeb22.

One Texas Department of Agriculture continuing education unit in drift management will be available.

After payment has been received, a follow-up email will be sent from the event organizer with instructions on how to access the webinar. For questions, contact Morgan Treadwell, Ph.D., AgriLife Extension range specialist, San Angelo, at morgan.treadwell@ag.tamu.edu.

“When conducting herbicide applications, especially aerially, drift is a priority and concern at all times,” Treadwell said. “This month’s presentation will discuss relevant wind, weather and general ‘go vs. no-go’ considerations when preparing for herbicide applications.”

Complexities of drift management

The expert speaker for the webinar is Scott Nolte, Ph.D., AgriLife Extension state weed specialist in Texas A&M’s Department of Soil and Crop Sciences, Bryan-College Station.

“We are so fortunate to have Dr. Nolte share his insight and perspective with us during this RWFM Stewardship webinar,” Treadwell said. “Dr. Nolte’s expertise in herbicide applications is statewide with an overall knowledge of effective, profitable and sustainable integrated weed management in row crops, pastures, home lawns, golf courses and sports fields in Texas.”

Nolte’s applied research, in concert with collaborative efforts from other disciplines, allows Texans to make informed weed management choices, she said.
