Fertilization is essential to maintaining a functionally and aesthetically pleasing turfgrass stand that is able to withstand traffic, weeds, diseases, and insect pests. Fertilization practices, particularly in relation to N and P, continue to be heavily scrutinized in many areas of the U.S. and beyond. In this 60-minute webinar, Ben Wherley, Ph.D., focuses on science-based nutrient management decisions golf course superintendents can make that result in greater efficiency of fertilizer use and minimization of environmental losses. Listen in to get tips that may help you become a better nutrient manager through recognition of the relationship between soil, plant, and environment. Also included is a review of the ultimate fate of fertilizer nutrients in the turf/soil system.
