Online program to help forage producers maximize their crop yields.

Forage production in northeast Texas will be the topic of a May 20-Zoom presentation by the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service .

Jessica Humphrey, AgriLife Extension agriculture and natural resources agent, Lamar County, said the online forage production program is designed to help producers maximize their crop yields through the growing season.

“Getting the best quality and quantity out of your forage-producing acres with the least number of inputs is the goal for most every operation, and this program focuses on how to maximize production with that in mind,” Humphrey said. “I think there is good information and value to be found in this program for both new and experienced producers.”

Topics and presenters

  • Soil health and Fertilizer 101, Humphrey.
  • Common Weeds and Herbicide Use in Hay Meadows, Vanessa Corriher-Olson, AgriLife Extension forage specialist, Overton.
  • Advantages of Baleage vs. Dry Hay, Corriher-Olson. 

The program, hosted by the agency's Lamar and Cass counties, will be presented on the Zoom meeting platform. Cost is $15. Register at
