Course Summary:

Kyle Miller shares over 30 years of experience as a technical representative to answer the most common golf superintendent questions. The discussion will include the top agronomic questions of the best spray nozzle technology for pesticide applications, watering-in fungicides, how pre-emergent herbicides work, controlling weeds in naturalized areas, the proper storage of pesticides, optimizing dollar spot control, and many more. The course will continue with introducing the new, proprietary chemistry (Maxtima and Navicon) with a unique mode of action that will provide applicators with a resistance management tool. Trial data from university-funded research in the northeast and throughout the country will be reviewed to demonstrate enhanced performance on dollar spot, anthracnose, and other diseases. In addition, plant health trials targeted at minimizing the impact of mechanical, heat, and drought stresses, improving root development, and providing a more efficient plant that maximizes photosynthesis and slows down respiration will be discussed.
