“While we won’t be touring an actual piece of land this year, this will be a great opportunity to hear experts speak on topics that we get a lot of questions about over the course of the year,” said Tom Guthrie, AgriLife Extension agent for Mills County.
Topics and speakers include:
- Planting Native Seed – Megan Clayton, Ph.D., AgriLife Extension range specialist, Corpus Christi.
- Texas Native Seeds Program: Native Seed Mix Selection Tool – Forrest S. Smith, Dan L Duncan Endowed Director of Texas Native Seeds, Caesar Kleberg Wildlife Research Institute, Texas A&M University-Kingsville.
“We are looking forward to being able to provide producers with the latest information and encourage everyone to join us whether you’re a past participant or this will be your first time doing a range tour,” said Heath Lusty, AgriLife Extension agent for Lampasas County.
