I’m in the process of trying to locate a couple cooperators that would be interested in partnering on a result demonstration project. Few options I’m considering:
- IPT Basal and Cut Stump Applications (huisache, mesquite, woody plant species) – Ideally need 50-100 plants to treat.
- Soil Moisture Retention – Look at moisture levels of pastures grazed sustainably versus pastures grazed more intensely and forage response the following growing season.
- Native Pasture Establishment – Look at native grasses versus a native grass and forb mix to evaluate forage composition and nutrition.
- Pasture Management – Look at the use of an aerator versus a disk (and other implements) for grass production and soil moisture.
If you have an interest, please contact me at the Extension Office 210-631-0400. We’re not limited to the above so if you’ve got a particular problem or issue, let’s visit and see what we can come up with.
