What I Got Out of ASCS
"I saw
this series as a good stepping-stone in reaching my career goals …. (It) helped me figure out areas where I need to improve and took me out of my comfort zone. It also gave me great ideas to implement at our facility." - Jacob Martens, assistant superintendent, Champions Run, Omaha, Neb.

The U.S. has experienced some severe storms this season with the potential for more remaining. Ron Wright, CGCS, updates this webinar from our series on disasters to help you create or update your emergency response plan.

Each webinar in the series is designed to focus on a single crisis type. You'll hear what happened, what plan was in place and what the CGCS in charge learned and now recommends. In Wright’s case, he experienced several hurricanes first hand at the Country Club of Mobile. During this quick hour, he’ll cover tips for clean-up, how best-laid plans may need to adapt, and review systems and plans you’ll want to put in place as soon as you can.

At the onset of this micro learning event, Beth Guertal, Ph.D., explains, “A soil test report is supposed to give you an idea of what the nutrient status is of various soil nutrients in your soil and then give you a recommendation for how much you need to see your plant through the next cropping season.” She then proceeds to use BEER as an example to help you better understand the nuances of soil reports. Take a look to learn more about the differences between labs and how that impacts the report you receive.

McKone will explain ways this has changed in the ten years that have transpired since he first taught on this topic, including new permitting issues.
