In this 60-minute webinar, Joey Young, Ph.D., will focuses on results from a recently completed study of soil physical properties measured from golf course fairways affecting plant available water (PAW). Recognizing key soil physical properties that positively or negatively influence PAW can let you alter supplemental irrigation to achieve more consistent soil moisture and playing conditions within golf course fairways. Listen in to learn more about this two-year study and its take aways.

About the Instructor
Joseph Young, Ph.D., is an assistant professor in the department of plant and soil sciences at Texas Tech University. He earned both his bachelors and masters at Mississippi State University, evaluating fungicide resistance from anthracnose on bentgrass putting greens for the latter. Young earned his Ph.D. from the University of Arkansas, studying the physiological effects of low mowing heights, rolling and foot traffic on creeping bentgrass putting greens there. Young’s current research consists of carbon sequestration potential for bermudagrass fairways, PGR evaluations on creeping bentgrass putting greens, evaluating grass species for water needs in West Texas, and determining the effect of poor water quality on bermudagrass fairways.
