Thursday, February 4
12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

It has been estimated that as much as 25% of all turfgrass sites are experiencing shade stress. This seminar will cover several methods that attendees can use to measure the amount of light received on various locations of your golf course. Participants will gain the foundation concepts of how to:

o Apply scientific measurement techniques to measure light at your course

o Understand how much light your turf requires to function and perform

o Provide data and solutions to memberships based on quantitative measures
