Over the past 30 years, there have been significant advancements in golf course maintenance techniques. These changes in cultural, mechanical and chemical practices are focused on maintaining turfgrass health while meeting customer expectations. The San Antonio Turfgrass Talk Show panelists will discuss maintaining golf courses under extreme heat conditions, with decreasing pesticide availability and poor soil conditions.
Through an interactive discussion, the panelists and audience will cover numerous agronomic practices to address the question: What drives your management practices – research or word of mouth? Start your GCSAA Education Conference experience off with a spark and join us for this quick-paced, interactive session that features superintendents from round the globe, a live band and a reception immediately following the session.
