As the title indicates, Derek Settle, Ph.D., discusses nematodes and management strategies for both bermudagrass and creeping bentgrass greens in this 60-minute webinar. The primary focus is sand-based putting greens and will begin with our most common nematodes that we can expect to find. Newer information that helps explain why damage thresholds for each nematode species are not always helpful. A good understanding of nematode population densities both spatially (within a green) and temporally (across time) is necessary knowledge for both superintendent and staff. Research on both cultural and chemical strategies to control nematodes will also be presented. Listen in to learn more about management of these pests.
