Pesticide Free at Doubleday Field: Challenges and Opportunities
Thursday, October 16, 2014 at 9:00 am to 11:00 am rain or shine
Doubleday Field, 1 Doubleday Court, Cooperstown, NY 13326
Concerns over environmental and health impacts prompted the Village of Cooperstown to undertake management of Doubleday Field without the use of pesticides. Years later, we have the opportunity to explore the successes and challenges of pesticide-free maintenance of this iconic ball field.
Join Quinton Hasak, Doubleday Field Grounds Manager, and members of the Cornell Turf Team as we tour the facility and discuss IPM practices, turf management, budgets, staffing, and the quality of the facility.
Turfgrass managers, interested citizens and baseball fans are all welcome. No fee.
