Stress isn’t any better for turfgrass than it is for people. Just like when we work to achieve more, push our limits, there can be consequences to pushing turfgrass with strenuous management practices. Beth Guertal, Ph.D., looks at stresses that come from such practices but also those that come from life. While the latter might not be as much in your control, she’ll explain choices you can make to help minimize stress due to heat, drought, cold, flooding, salinity, pests, etc. This 90-minute webinar, part of our ASCS Prep series, will give you food for thought for de-stressing your turf and maybe inspiration to de-stress other aspects of your life.
