How Are We Doing?

As we reflect on this year’s crop, it is important for us at Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service to know how we have helped you. Please provide feedback on the IPM Program and help give us direction in the next year.

Time for Soil Testing

It is time to test the soil in your fields for nutrient content and fertilizer recommendations.  Since 2013, we have sampled fields and found soil nitrogen levels up to 168 lbs N per acre. This can be a opportunity to reducing costs without affecting yields. On average, fields can save $15-$20 by reducing fertilizer rates based on soil tests to 24″. The Mid-Coast IPM Program is equipped to soil test with a hydraulic soil probe that samples to a depth of 24″. Contact Stephen Biles 361-552-9747 (Office) 361-920-1138… Read More →
