Strategies & Planning for Fall Weed Control
Jim Brosnan, Ph.D.
Fall weed control programs are often overlooked by fatigued superintendents who fought to maintain turf quality during stressful summer weather. Jim Brosnan, Ph.D., will present integrated fall weed control strategies for control of troublesome weeds such as annual bluegrass, dallisgrass and common bermudagrass in both warm- and cool-season turf. Programs will be centered on the use of both new and existing herbicide chemistries along with cultural practices to maximize efficacy. Particular focus will be placed on the use of meteorological data to optimally time herbicide applications.
