Grain and vegetable crops are produced in the Texas High Plains and face old and new disease problems. Extension programs include agent training, coordination with grower/producers groups, plant disease fact sheets, as well as plant disease control and management options based on field trials and experiments. Applied research involves characterizing plant pathogens and the diseases they cause in order to implement management practices. The plant diagnostic lab component determines causal agents of diseased plants in a timely and efficient manner so that management options can be implemented as soon as possible.

- AgriLife puppies: Goat and sheep dogs in trainingOct 19
LGDs can be bonded to almost any species,” Costanzo said. “They also do a great job when bonded to poultry. Free-range poultry operations in California are using dogs to guard against predators.” Most likely the puppies will guard the flocks and herds belonging to AgriLife Research upon graduation. The plan is for two to remain […] The post AgriLife puppies: Goat and sheep dogs in training appeared first on AgriLife Today.
