    • Turf must have proper care and management and timely pest control to be attractive, have good color, and be free of weeds, insects and diseases.
    • Turfgrass management includes selecting the right grass, mowing, watering, fertilizing, and thatch control.
  • 3. Turfgrass Problems
    • Determine the kind of grasses involved.
    • Find out why the problem occurred.
    • Determine if the problem is best corrected by management practices, soil modification, or pesticides.
  • 4. Turfgrass Problems
    • Check to see if a chemical is labeled both for turfgrass species and disease.
    • Recommend good cultural practices that will assist in turfgrass recovery.
  • 5. Preventive Disease Control
    • Water properly
    • Control thatch
    • Mow to the proper height
    • Mow grass frequently
    • Do not restrict air movement
    • Use blends of grasses
    • Provide good drainage
  • 6. Preventive Disease Control
    • Fertilize properly
    • Follow a insect and weed control program
    • Do not plant grasses that are not adapted to your area.
  • 7. How do you Diagnosis??
      • Identify the turf grass
      • Determine the weather conditions before and during disease development
      • Look at the soil structure and fertility
      • Review cultural and chemical management practices
      • Determine the overall distribution of the problem
  • 8. How do you Diagnosis?
      • Observe symptoms on individual plants
      • Use reference materials
  • 9. Largest Turfgrass Disease Category
    • FUNGUS
    • Not going to talk about them.
  • 10. WEEDS
    • Any plant can be considered a weed if it is growing where it is not wanted.

    • Biennials
    • Perennials

    • Granular formulations are effective for preemergence herbicides.
    • Liquid formulations are better for postemergence control where foliar coverage is needed.
  • 14. Broadleaf Weed Control
    • Spring and fall applications of postemergence herbicides normally give satisfactory control and reduce the possibility of damage to nontarget plants.
  • 15. Grassy Weed Control
    • Control of annual grasses is best achieved with preemergence herbicide for general infestations and spot treatment with postemergence herbicides for localized infestations.
  • 16. Factors Influencing Weed Control with Soil Applied Herbicides
    • Kinds of weeds
    • Application rate
    • Uniformity of application
    • Solubility of herbicide
    • Volatility of herbicide
    • Rainfall or irrigation
    • Soil type
    • Organic matter
  • 17. Factors Influencing Weed Control with Foliage Applied Herbicides
    • Kinds of weeds
    • Application rate
    • Uniformity of application
    • Spray additives
    • Stage and rate of weed or crop growth
    • Loss due to rain or degradation by sunlight
    • Retention on leaves
  • 18. Managing Insects
    • Inspect all lawn and turf areas on a regular basis
    • Learn how to ID important turf insect and their damage
