Sports fields create unique management challenges for turfgrass managers. Stresses related to foot and vehicular traffic can greatly complicate pest management decisions, and in certain parts of the United States chemical options for pest management on sports fields are limited. This presentation will provide attendees a tour of on-going research at the University of Tennessee Center for Athletic Field Safety to maximize the quality of warm- and cool-season turfgrasses used on sports fields to thereby reduce pest infestation.

This webinar is part of A Digital Learning Series provided by the faculty, staff and students from with the University of Tennessee Turfgrass Science and Management program.
