Tuesday September 27 will be the date of a brush control tour conducted by the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service in Brown County.
It will be held at the Brownwood Recycling Center and Landfill located at 6800 FM 45. The tour will begin at 5:30pm.
Brush encroachment continues to be a problem for rural landowners and municipalities alike. Unlike grass and forages brush encroachment does not seem to be affected by drought. During the brush tour we will look at Willow Baccharis that were utilized in research plots. Willow Baccharis is becoming a serious invader species of brush in several areas. Many people often confuse Willow Baccharis with salt cedar.
The brush tour on September 27th is open to anyone interested.
There will be a $10 registration fee payable at the gate on September 27th.
Two (2) CEU’s will be offered to licensed pesticide applicators.
Tour participants are asked to arrive 5:15-5:30 to complete registration.
No RSVP needed just show up.
