Reduced Chemical Golf Course Management

Drs. Frank Rossi and Jennifer Grant, along with Golf Course Superintendents Andy Wilson and Kathie Wegman, will lead a tour and discuss their eleven years of applied research on reduced pesticide and fertilizer use.

Also discuss and see reduced-chemical tee, fairway and rough management; what happens without pre-emergent crabgrass applications or broadleaf herbicides; and the use of reduced risk and alternative pest management practices and products.
