Turfgrass Weed Management Course

Bookmark and Share
Date & Time

Last Held: March 19-20, 2019
9:00am - 3:30pm (Check-in time: 8:30am)

Next offering TBD.

Description

Landscape managers spend more time and money controlling weeds than insects and diseases, so a clear understanding of weed biology and management strategies is important for successful and profitable landscape businesses.

Led by Scott Guiser (retired Extension Specialist from Penn State University), this popular two-day class will cover:

  • Hands-on weed identification exercises;
  • Chemical and non-chemical controls;
  • Weed life cycles;
  • Ecology;
  • Proper use of mulches; and
  • Other aspects of a modern weed control program

You'll even go outside and learn an easy way to calibrate a backpack sprayer, weather permitting.
