Public perception versus reality as it relates to turf management is the focus of this 90-minute webcast taught by John Stier, Ph.D. Issues addressed include use of pesticides, water quality, invasive species, and greenhouse gas emissions. Specific cases of perception versus reality of environmental issues related to turfgrass management are covered, with background information about science and legal processes that are used but often misunderstood. You’ll learn from the cases discussed how various groups (municipal entities, politicians, etc.) may be approached to “win” a point which someday just might allow a golf course to keep doing business. Listen in to learn more about how to communicate the science you use.
