Nemacur deadline reminder
In 2014, the EPA granted GCSAA's request for an extension on the use of fenamiphos (Nemacur nematicide) existing stocks labeled for use on golf courses until Oct. 6, 2017. Golf course superintendents must deplete their existing stocks by that deadline.
ELGA applications are now open
The GCSAA/Golf Digest Environmental Leaders in Golf Awards recognize golf course superintendents and golf courses around the world for their commitment to environmental stewardship. Presented in partnership with Syngenta and Rain Bird, ELGA applications are due Sept. 30.
