The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service in Travis County and Dr. Larry Stein, Associate Department Head for Extension Horticulture from Texas A&M University, will present “Home Fruit Production” to help you plan for and manage fruit in your landscape.
The free live webinar will begin at 10 a.m. and conclude around 12:00 pm on September 14th. To register, click here or copy and paste the link in your browser: https://traviscountytx-gov.zoomgov.com/webinar/register/3016273251790/WN_YisNNQSySF66oasxRUEerA.
Dr. Stein will discuss the types and varieties of fruit that grow successfully in Travis County, especially as it relates to the thin Edwards Plateau soils to the west and the heavy clay Blackland Prairies soils on the east side. He will explain how chill hours and irrigation impact fruit set, and which varieties are the most adapted to our area.
Due to technological constraints, the webinar has a limit of 100 attendees, but an unlimited number of people can register and see a recording of the program.
Attendees will have the opportunity to submit questions prior to the webinar and receive answers during the live program as time allows. Questions not answered during the live webinar will be answered by email.
The webinar complements the recent publication of the book, From Drought to Deluge: The Resilient Central Texas Garden, which can be purchased online from the Travis County Master Gardeners Association.
