Proper identification of pests, including weeds, is a key first step toward control. In this 60-minute webinar, presented by PBI-Gordon, you’ll get a better understanding of the full life cycle of Goosegrass as it relates to implementing control strategies. Matt Elmore, Ph.D., discusses herbicide options for control in cool-season turfgrass, including creeping bentgrass. You’ll get tips you can use on how to best implement these herbicides into your overall weed control program. This event was approved for external education points and is available at no cost for all.
The Annual Bluegrass Weevil (ABW) dates back to 1931 in Conn., but in the past ten plus years, this destructive pest continues to spread south (N.C.) and west (Ohio, Ky.) Mike Agnew, Ph.D., Matt Giese, and Lane Tredway, Ph.D. discuss ABW research findings in each of these areas as well as digital tools and controls.
This 90-minute webinar discusses -- you guessed it! -- annual bluegrass seedhead suppression in putting greens. Matt Elmore, Ph.D., and Zane Raudenbush, Ph.D., review recent research on cool-season greens, examining spring, fall and winter applications of various plant growth regulator (PGR) combinations for said suppression. The biology of seed production in annual bluegrass is examined. You’ll also learn about some considerations for incorporating PGR applications into agronomic programs for creeping bentgrass and annual bluegrass putting greens. Listen in to hear how timing of applications can make a difference. Available at no cost to all, presented by Intelligro.
High grass areas can be challenging to maintain due to high weed pressure and their potential to get “too thick”. Steve McDonald discusses both cultural and chemical practices and timing to maintain weed free and aesthetically pleasing fine fescue high grass areas on golf courses in this 60-minute webinar.
Poa annua can be a troublesome weed or desired turfgrass species. In this 60-minute webinar presented by PBI-Gordon, Shawn Askew, Ph.D., provides both chemical and cultural control strategies for poa annua.
Prepare to elevate your control of anthracnose this season as Jim Murphy, Ph.D., Bruce Clarke, Ph.D., and Michael Agnew, Ph.D. discuss multiple aspects of this destructive disease. Dr. Clarke kicks off this 60-minute webinar with a quick overview of the disease followed by Dr. Murphy’s discussion of the cultural practices that can significantly decrease the severity of anthracnose. Dr. Clarke then discusses several of the control options available to superintendents while Dr. Agnew summarizes how to put it all together in an effective, season-long agronomic program.
During this 60-minute webinar, Lane Tredway, Ph.D., reviews insect life cycles, demonstrates monitoring methods, and discusses options for integrated management of the most common insect pests in warm-season turfgrasses.
You know from seeing the photos that not all fairy rings – and accompanying mushrooms – look the same. In this 60-minute webinar, presented by PBI-Gordon and taught by Mike Fidanza, Ph.D., we examine the biology and ecology for proper fairy ring identification and control.
Demethylation inhibiting (DMI) fungicides are a powerful tool for management of turfgrass pathogens. In this 60-minute webinar presented by PBI-Gordon, Brian A. Aynardi, Ph.D., discusses the use of DMI fungicides for control of various pathogens.
During this webinar, Mike Agnew, Ph.D., introduces two new fungicides that have been specifically engineered for managing the #1 disease in golf course turf. Lisa Beirn, Ph.D., discusses a new genus and four new species of dollar spot threatening turfgrass. Don’t miss this critical information about new research, the next generation of fungicides, resistance management strategies, and how to extend dollar spot control to condition your turf so it performs at its best and recovers quickly from stress.
Anthracnose is a common disease that may be found in conjunction with other diseases. In this 60-minute webinar, presented by PBI-Gordon, Brandon Horvath, Ph.D., provides an understanding of anthracnose in turfgrass stands like Poa annua and creeping bentgrass. He then moves on to practices to help minimize damage, and the best, current fungicide practices and applications that help you maximize disease control. Listen in for take-aways you can use for the upcoming golf season.
Zoysiagrasses are growing in popularity for golf course turf, thanks to several new varieties with improved agronomic characteristics. However, large patch continues to be a challenge for golf course superintendents throughout the U.S. transition zone and south. In this 60-minute webinar, Matt Giese, Mike Richardson, Ph.D., and Lane Tredway, Ph.D., present a comprehensive approach to large patch management.
In this 60-minute webinar presented by PBI-Gordon, Jim Kerns, Ph.D., covers the etiology (cause), epidemiology (conditions favoring disease development) and management of this destructive disease.
In this 60-minute webinar, presented by the Oregon Tall Fescue Commission, Dan Sandor, Ph.D., and Tyler Carr, review the latest research-based findings on water BMPs, and discuss cultural approaches and advanced irrigation techniques to promote optimum water-use without sacrificing turfgrass quality.
Labor continues to be a top issue in the golf industry. If you see this in your future or as something you are currently facing, join Tyler Bloom for this 60-minute webinar presented by PBI-Gordon.
In this 60-minute webinar presented by the Oregon Tall Fescue Commission, Adam Thoms, Ph.D., shares knowledge on height of cut and traffic tolerance from recent research conducted in Iowa.
In this 60-minute webinar, presented by the Oregon Fine Fescue Commission, Paul Koch, Ph.D., introduces the most important diseases of fine fescues, how to use key identification characteristics for each disease, and cultural and chemical strategies for effectively managing them.
During this 60-minute webinar, Dean Mosdell, Ph.D., and Lane Tredway, Ph.D., introduce new solutions for managing troublesome grassy weeds in warm-season turf. Don’t miss this critical information about new research, the next generation herbicide, resistance management strategies, and how to plan an agronomic herbicide program to control weeds throughout the season. Listen in and get take-aways you can use on your golf course.
There are now over 130 cultivars of tall fescue in the National Turfgrass Trials (NTEP.org) This 60-minute webinar, presented by the Oregon Tall Fescue Commission and taught by William A. Meyer, Ph.D., reviews improvements to cultivars made including disease, insect, drought and heat tolerance. Uses of this species are covered including strategies to mix with other turf types to improve turf performance. Listen in to learn more about cultural practices, Brown patch tolerance and genes that may be resistant to gray leaf spot.
Lane P. Tredway, Ph.D., reviews the latest research on management of large patch and spring dead spot in this 60-minute webinar presented by Syngenta. Tredway summarizes current control recommendations and discusses online tools that can be used to accurately time preventive applications.
