As prescribed fire gains popularity as a range management tool, so does the need for up-to-the-minute information.
To meet the growing need, the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service developed a prescribed burning handbook funded by the Texas A&M Natural Resources Institute.
The resulting Texas Prescribed Burning Handbook allows practitioners to access information virtually, Russell said. The first way is through a website https://agrilife.org/rxburn/.
“Download that app and you’ll be able to pull up all the graphs and all the tables available on the website and figure out any type of fire weather conditions or situations you need to achieve,” she said.
Russell said the effort is ongoing featuring a revolving source of information that’s constantly updated to provide the most current information to prescribed burn practitioners.
