January 22, 2013
Education Points: .1
Lane Tredway, Ph.D., Syngenta technical manager, will debunk several misconceptions about Pythium diseases, such as the myth that Pythium is only a problem in cool-season turf. He will also explore the differences between various Pythium diseases — such as root rot and root dysfunction — and the various fungicide and cultural practices superintendents can employ for effective Pythium management. Additionally, he will focus on disease diagnosis and fungicide resistance management.
