Jim Brosnan, Ph.D.
Mobile Weed Manual (MWM; www.mobileweedmanual.com) is an extension resource developed to assist green industry professionals in selecting herbicides for use in turf and ornamentals. MWM is a web-based platform optimized for use on mobile devices such as smartphones and tablet computers. In this 60-minute webinar, Jim Brosnan, Ph.D., will show how the site provides users with weed control efficacy information for 88 different herbicides, tolerance information for over 2,300 turf and ornamental species, as well as direct links to label and safety data sheet information for herbicides used for turf and ornamental weed management.
MWM can provide you with several search options for selecting herbicides to manage weeds either pre- or postemergence. You’ll learn how to indicate the desirable turf or ornamental species in which weeds are present and MWM will provide a list of herbicides labeled for use in that desirable species. Brosnan will explain how to further refine searches by indicating both a desirable species and target weed. MWM will provide a list of herbicides labeled for control of the target weed in the desirable species indicated.
Since debuting online in May 2013, MWM has aided over 70,000 individuals worldwide with weed management decisions. Join us to learn how to take advantage of this online resource.
