Developing A Pesticide Management Plan for Cool and Warm Season Turf Pests

10:45 am
Wednesday, February 1
Holshouser Building
Presenter: Matt Martin, NCSU Extension
This seminar will focus on developing a seasonal pesticide maintenance plan for cool and warm season turf species. Understanding how and when to control pests in cool and warm season using preventive rather than curative pest control measures is critical to successful long-term success.  Managing turfgrass pests using preventive disease, insect, and weed strategies may provide longer pest control with fewer pesticide applications. Participants will learn how to develop specific programs for reduction of disease, insect, and weed activity, taking advantage of cultural, biological and chemical strategies. 
The instructor for the session will be Matt Martin, Extension Associate - Turfgrass, NCSU Crop Science Dept.  This course has been approved for the following one-hour credits by the Pesticide Division of the NC Department of Agriculture:  L,N,D,X
The class is free and does not require registration. Bring your pesticide card to scan
