Area soil-testing campaign under way
Rising costs for fertilizer are creating challenges for South Texas producers, making soil testing for nutrients more important than ever in support of growing forage and row crops. In response to this need, the Bee, Karnes, and Wilson County Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service and their respective agricultural committees will host a Soil Testing Campaign and Nutrient Management Seminar.
The soil-testing campaign will run until Wednesday, Sept. 12. Forms and soil bags are available at the Extension office and from Beef & Forage Committee members. Return samples to the Extension office to be processed. Sample costs will be $8 for a routine sample with a limit of three samples per customer.
A Nutrient Management Symposium will be held Thursday, Oct. 18, from 2-7 p.m. in Kenedy City Hall in Kenedy. Six speakers will address nutrient management, ranging from forage crops to rangelands.
The program will conclude with a catered meal. Cost for the program will be $15, with five Private Pesticide Applicator Continuing Education Units being available.
For more information or to register, call the Karnes County Extension office at 830-780-3906.
