Until recently, chemical fungicides were the foremost tool used for disease prevention and management of amenity turfgrasses, but recent legislative restrictions have now prohibited their use… so now what do we use? If you are a superintendent seeking additional control tools, focusing on non-chemical controls and resources this seminar might be for you. Participants will leave this seminar with the knowledge to determine and combine cultural, nutritional, and defense enhancement methods into a program for your specific site in order to reduce disease incidence.
