This landscape and turfgrass management training course will cover:

  • Chemical controls
  • Control strategies for your weed problems
  • Weed life cycles
  • Ecology
  • Proper use of mulches

Taught by Scott Guiser, Extension Educator, Penn State University, this two-day turf management class will explain the aspects of a comprehensive weed control program. Learn and practice weed identification techniques.
