  • Major environmental stressors that cause performance decline
  • Physiological reasons behind stress injury to turf
  • Advanced management strategies to prevent stress injury and improve recovery from damaged turf
  • How to determine if the many products and tools available to superintendents are appropriate for their course: what works, what doesn’t and why
