Healthy turfgrass –- especially healthy greens -– stays healthier longer. Research is showing you can use turf’s own defenses to battle stress. We will review the basics of plant growth and stress or immune responses, touching on the subjects of photosynthesis, light stress, antioxidants, hormones, amino acids, proteins, nutrition and water relations. In this 90-minute webcast, Erik Ervin, Ph.D., shares research concerning plant health products aimed at boosting turf’s natural defenses against summer stress, including products containing active ingredients such as pigments, phosphites, PGRs, seaweed extract, humics, amino acids, strobilurins, sunscreen, surfactants and acibenzolar.
