K-State, in cooperation with other agencies, are conducting Prescribed Burning Workshops during February and into early March. These workshops bring together presenters from state and federal agencies.
Two common brush species native to Kansas and widely spread across the state are roughleaf dogwood and smooth sumac. These shrubs can produce clumps that will shade out and reduce forage production. Be on the lookout for these shrubs and implement a control plan if needed.
Dr. John Weir will present the 23rd annual Kling Anderson Range Science Lectureship on Tuesday, November 7, at 3:30 p.m. on K-State’s Manhattan campus. The title of Weir’s lecture is “Burning Outside the Box.” This lecture is free and open to the public. The Kling Anderson Lectureship was established to enhance training in Range and Forage Management at Kansas State University.
