Complexities of drift management
The expert speaker for the webinar is Scott Nolte, Ph.D., AgriLife Extension state weed specialist in Texas A&M’s Department of Soil and Crop Sciences, Bryan-College Station.
“We are so fortunate to have Dr. Nolte share his insight and perspective with us during this RWFM Stewardship webinar,” Treadwell said. “Dr. Nolte’s expertise in herbicide applications is statewide with an overall knowledge of effective, profitable and sustainable integrated weed management in row crops, pastures, home lawns, golf courses and sports fields in Texas.”
Nolte’s applied research, in concert with collaborative efforts from other disciplines, allows Texans to make informed weed management choices, she said.
