Two soil-nutrient management short courses are set for mid-August in College Station and Abilene.
The Texas AgriLife Extension Service is conducting the series to offer training for government agency employees, golf course managers and interested citizens.
The first course will be Aug. 14-17 in College Station and the second will be in Abilene on Aug. 21-24.
Registration information is available at http://nmp.tamu.edu and by clicking on “Get Certified.” Registration deadline is one week in advance of the course and the cost will depend on who is taking the course and whether testing will be included.
Dr. Sam Feagley, AgriLife Extension state soil environmental specialist and program coordinator, said in an AgriLife news release that the course is geared mainly for people developing or approving nutrient management plans.
“We also have people working with golf courses and others working with producers who use nutrient-management plans to save money,” he said in the release. “We expect between 30 to 40 people at each short course, and they will come from across the state, as well as neighboring states.”
