Can we maintain lawns without using toxic pesticides?  The answer is “yes”, but a successful program requires a sound understanding of many cultural practices.  Join us as we discuss these questions and review the important requirements for specific pest problems, especially the common weeds.  Expect to leave with ideas you can implement immediately.

This workshop will be of interest to commercial landscapers and gardeners wanting in-depth information on the management of weeds and other turf pests. Part of the workshop will be hands-on, centering on identification and management of common weeds, insects and diseases in BC.  There will also be a review of the new IPM guide for turf managers, published by BC’s golf course associations.
