Presented by Civitas

Matthew Weaver, CGCS

Chemical pesticide application has been the dominant form of disease control on heavily managed turf for decades. Societal pressures in many locations over the past several years have led to the search for alternative methods of disease control. One of these alternatives is activated disease resistance, which involves using a plant’s own defense arsenal to combat disease.

Join Mathew Weaver, CGCS, to learn how traditional chemical and activated resistance-type fungicides work. You'll also learn how turfgrass plants respond physiologically to applications of activated resistance products. Impacts regarding input reductions, latest research and field observations will be covered, as well as information on ways you can get started using these products. Appropriate timing and how to integrate these products into your existing IPM program will also be discussed.
