Cyanobacteria: Concerns & Management Webinar

July 23 @ 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM


Presented by Brittany Chesser
Aquatic Vegetation Management Program Specialist, Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service
Lead Diagnostic Scientist, TAMU Aquatic Diagnostics Laboratory

This 1-hour how-to educational program will focus on Cyanobacteria, also known as blue-green algae. Since 2019, cyanobacteria and blue-green algae have been used as buzzwords in the media related to degraded water quality.

In this program, we will discuss:

  • What conditions create the perfect environment for cyanobacteria to outcompete other organisms.
  • Toxins produced by cyanobacteria species.
  • Visual cues that a bloom may be occurring.

Finally, we will discuss misconceptions, misidentifications, and management strategies for several situations.

There will be a 30-minute Q&A session at the conclusion of the webinar.

This webinar will offer 1 General CEU for pesticide applicators in Texas.
*A recording will be provided to paid participants who cannot attend live.
*CEUs are only for live participants.
