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.
In this 60-minute webinar, presented by PBI-Gordon, Shawn Askew, Ph.D., professor of Turf Weed Science at Virginia Tech, brings you up-to-date on the latest research results of the 16 university scientists working on a poa project funded by USDA NIFA.
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.
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 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., will cover the etiology (cause), epidemiology (conditions favoring disease development) and management of this destructive disease.
This Live event will take place on Mar. 16, 2021, @ noon Central. Register now to receive your emailed access.
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., will introduce the most important diseases of fine fescues, determine key identification characteristics for each disease.

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.
In this 60-minute webinar, Lane Tredway, Ph.D., reviews how you can prepare your bermudagrass greens for winter and maximize spring quality. Particular focus is on fungicide programs to prevent the many pathogens that contribute to bermudagrass decline.

Brandon Horvath, Ph.D., covers the background of how fungicide resistance develops over time in this 60-minute webinar presented by PBI-Gordon.
Fairy ring and mini-ring are very different diseases, but they often develop concurrently in bermudagrass putting greens. In this 60-minute webinar, Lane Tredway, Ph.D., and Luke Dant present the latest information on both diseases.
With the start of a new decade, there are a number of new fungicides from which golf course superintendents will be able to choose. In this 60-minute webinar, presented by PBI-Gordon, Jim Kerns, Ph.D., reviews the basics of what a fungicide is and how they work.
Annual bluegrass (Poa annua) is a troublesome weed on bermudagrass putting greens throughout the world. Despite the advent and success of chemical control options, cultural practices are still the most effective long-term solution to reduce the weed’s presence. In this 90-minute webinar, presented by PBI-Gordon, Jay McCurdy, Ph.D., discusses herbicide resistant annual bluegrass and best management practices for preventing and controlling it on bermudagrass putting greens.
Managing the driving range has many challenges, to put it lightly. You must coordinate picking with mowing, manage labor cost and availability, and facilitate ball management . . . and that’s just the beginning. In this 60-minute webinar, Joe Fahey and Jake Vollbeer discuss how the use of robots can automate your driving range.
Spring dead spot and take-all root rot are two of the most common root diseases in bermudagrass and certain other warm-season grasses. Management with sound cultural practices and properly timed fungicide applications are key to success against both diseases as outlined in this 60-minute webinar.
