Clemson announces 2019 Turf School
CLEMSON — Turfgrass professionals can learn the latest research-based information for turfgrass management during Clemson’s annual Turf School to be held at locations throughout South Carolina.
The Turf School is a one-day course designed and conducted by Clemson University scientists to help turfgrass managers overcome the technical challenges of managing grounds, lawns, recreational parks, athletic fields and sod-production facilities.
The 2019 program will focus on identifying and implementing best management practices for water quality, insect pests, diseases, fertilization and weeds.
Pesticide Recertification credits will be awarded for South Carolina participants.
