Stress Pre-Conditioning to Maximize Turf Health


Presented by Bayer 

Mar. 5, 2015
11 a.m. (Central)

Bill Kreuser, Ph.D

There is a perception among turfgrass professionals that plant stress is always bad. The truth, is we constantly use plant stress to manipulate the growth and performance of our turfgrasses. In this plant health webinar, Bill Kreuser, Ph.D., will focus on how turfgrasses respond to stress and ways to use small, well-timed, stresses to promote turfgrass health. Kreuser will highlight common management practices and products that can be used to pre-condition turf to survive extreme and uncontrollable stress during the growing season. 

Healthy Turf, Healthy Tomorrow is a multi-faceted program aimed at advancing plant health research and education for superintendents to help ensure the health of their courses – and the industry – for the future. Bayer will invest a percentage of StressGard FT product sales to fund the program and support the mission of the Environmental Institute for Golf (EIFG).
