Sometimes when we say, “Focus on the big picture.” you really need to start with something small. That’s where Beth Guertal, Ph.D., will start with this webinar designed to help you be successful with our ASCS Agronomy exam. You’ll also work toward more successful turfgrass management as she explains how basic plant parts are used for turf cultivar and species identification. This leads to right plant, right place and a series of management decisions that Guertal covers in a case study that rounds out this 90-minute webinar. If you didn’t take turfgrass biology in school – or if it’s been awhile – join us for a refresher that can have practical applications.
