A comprehensive look into herbicides for making safe applications while creating an effective weed control program.View Online Course
This course will give turf managers the ability to build on their herbicide knowledge to make informed and safe application decisions. The discussion will focus on the basic differences between herbicides with different modes of actions (MOAs) in warm and cool-season turf, including non-selective vs. selective, contact vs. systemic, ester vs. amine, and mode of action vs. site of action. Turf managers will learn how to use the categories of herbicides plus their chemical and physical properties to not only create an effective weed control plan but to properly mix, apply, and respond appropriately to an accident or misapplication.
