Next offering tentatively planned for January 2019. Registration will open when course date is confirmed.


Troubleshooting pest problems is a skill customers expect (and demand) from landscape professionals and public grounds managers. Weeds, diseases, and insects are ready to attack weak turf and create an eyesore. In this one-day class, you will learn valuable clues to effectively diagnose and treat insect, disease, and weed problems in turf. Instructors Rich Buckley, Director of the Rutgers Plant Diagnostic Laboratory, and Matt Elmore make this class both fun and practical.
