Spray Equipment Setup: Reduce Drift and Save Money will be the title of a Sept. 6 natural resources webinar conducted by the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service ecosystem science and management unit.
The webinar will be from noon to 1 p.m., and is part of the Texas Range Webinar Series scheduled the first Thursday of each month, said Pete Flores, AgriLife Extension webinar coordinator in Corpus Christi.
Dr. Josh McGinty, AgriLife Extension agronomist in Corpus Christi, will lead the discussion.
“This webinar will cover the details of setting up a sprayer so applications can be made as accurately and efficiently as possible,” McGinty said. “Additionally, spray nozzle types will be discussed to better understand the differences among nozzles with regard to spray coverage and drift.”
There will be one Texas Department of Agriculture drift minimization continuing education unit offered this month, Flores said. Participants seeking the CEU must pay a $10 fee on the website. For all others, there is no fee.
