Fall Fertilization: Prepare for Healthier Turf Next Spring
Presented by by Koch Agronomic Services, LLC
Join us for a Webinar on August 21

The spring of 2014 was a tough one for many courses, especially in the Northern U.S. After a difficult winter, superintendents dug their way out of the snow to discover that many greens and tees did not survive the harsh conditions. Fall fertilization is an integral part of healthy spring turfgrass growth and can play an important role in recovering from winter conditions. This is equally true in both cool- and warm-season grasses; the challenges and resulting programs will vary depending on climate. In this webinar, John Kruse, Ph.D., reviews critical planning and implementation of a fall fertilization program that will enable the plant to store energy in the roots and prepare for stronger growth and regeneration the following spring. This knowledge is valuable to superintendents working in any climate.
Date: Thursday, August 21, 2014
Time: 10:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m.

ALABAMA CHAPTER BEST MANAGEMENT PRACTICES - WATER USAGE
HELP US MEET OUR GOAL OF COMPLETION
In the turf industry, we rely on Best Management Practices in our water management, pest management, and fertility programs. These programs are beneficial in many different ways, often saving our respective courses money, as well as protecting the environment surrounding our course. The Alabama Chapter implemented a BMP in water conservation efforts in 2013. With water being the most precious resource to our survival both physically and professionally, it is all the more critical that we care for this resource.
