Critical Eye for the Turfgrass Guy

Roch Gaussoin, Ph.D.

Turf managers are inundated with product claims and testimonials that seem too good to be true. What does a turf manager need to know to critically evaluate the wealth of products available? Although the science of statistics can be cumbersome, a basic understanding will go a long way in helping turf managers make the most agronomically and economically sound decisions. In this 90-minute webcast, Roch Gaussoin, Ph.D., takes a look at product claims and help superintendents discern between great products and the not-so-great products.
