In this 90-minute webinar, Becky Grubbs-Bowling, Ph.D., provides a foundational background on water quality. She reviews considerations for water testing, and practical management tactics that can be considered to combat poor water quality. Strategies that select golf courses have implemented are discussed with input on what has/has not worked for superintendents dealing with water quality issues.
