ALABAMA CHAPTER BEST MANAGEMENT PRACTICES - WATER USAGE
HELP US MEET OUR GOAL OF 75% COMPLETION BY JANUARY, 2014
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 is implementing 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.
