Management of Cool Season Weeds in Fescue and Bermuda Lawns
— The best defense against turf grass weeds is a dense, healthy and actively growing turf. Many weeds grow vigorously under adverse climatic and soil conditions, competing with turf grasses for available light, water, nutrients and space. This webinar will discuss turf grass management practices which promote the growth of roots and shoots during favorable climatic conditions and preserve the plants' energy reserves during stress periods.
Webinar Presenter — Dr. Roy Bullock
Dr. Bullock is an Extension Professor and Program Leader in the College of Agriculture, Human and Natural Sciences at Tennessee State University. His research areas are focused on Plant and Soil Sciences including Weed Sciences, Integrated Pest Management and Sustainable Agriculture.
