Growing-season prescribed burns offer land managers the opportunity to extend their burning season to manage brush encroachment and improve forage quality.
May is a good time to monitor rainfall, grazing utilization and invasive species, as well as to prepare for stockpiling.

This insect could DESTROY your pecan crop! Dr. Charles Rohla, Pecan and Specialty Ag Systems Manager at Noble Research Institute, walks us through how to monitor and control pecan nut casebearers.
Researchers at Noble are gaining a better understanding of how deep and in what direction plant roots grow. Their hope is to provide knowledge that enables breeding of plants better able to utilize limited water and nutrient resources with the help of deeper roots.
Steve Upson, Senior Soils and Crops Consultant, walks us through constructing a raised bed garden module using recycled tires.
