Planning for More Dry Days

What can we learn from 2012?

Bud White

Many zones of the U.S. Midwest are in their third year of drought. Water reserves, including groundwater, are at an all-time low. In this 90-minute webcast, Bud White discusses long-term problems stemming from drought, including the impact extra salt in your water brings. You may need to make changes to best manage your golf course, and you’ll need to evaluate and budget accordingly in preparing for the playing season. Topics that are addressed range from pre-emergent herbicide applications this spring to water rationing going into summer, if needed. Listen now to get ideas you can use right away.
