Want to learn how to use agricultural applications for iPhones and iPads?

There isn't an app for that yet. But Texas AgriLife Extension has several classes scheduled in January to help farmers use ag-related apps more effectively, according to a news release.

Among the topics to be covered are learning to access market data; using apps for crop insurance, marketing plans and optimum irrigation; time-saving calculators and more.

Each participant will have access to iPads with the apps already installed.

Each workshop is limited to 30 participants, and the cost is $50 payable at the door by check.

Classes are planned for:

• Jan. 9, Lamesa, Forrest Park Community Center, South 10th and Houston,

• Jan. 23, Lubbock, Texas AgriLife Research and Extension Center, 1102 E. FM 1294,

• Jan. 27, Plainview, South Plains College, 1920, W. 24th St.,

• Jan. 30, Amarillo, Texas AgriLife Research and Extension Center, 6500 Amarillo Blvd.,

• Jan. 31, Dumas, location to be announced.
