The “What Vine is Growing on Your Fence?” webinar is part of the Texas Range Webinar Series, scheduled the first Thursday of each month from noon to 1 p.m., said Pete Flores, AgriLife Extension webinar coordinator in Corpus Christi.
Barron Rector, Ph.D., AgriLife Extension range specialist in the Texas A&M University Department of Range, Wildlife and Fisheries Management, College Station, will be the presenter.
A vine is any plant with a growth habit of trailing or having a mechanism for climbing using twining stems, adventitious clinging roots, twining petioles, and use of tendrils and even adhesive pads, Rector said.
“This webinar will address how woody vines grow and vines that can be found as pests growing on Texas fences,” he said. “Managing unwanted vines will be addressed through an integrated pest management approach detailing what we know works or does not work.”
One Texas Department of Agriculture integrated pest management continuing education unit will be offered, Flores said. Participants seeking CEUs must pay a $10 fee online, but all others can attend for free.
