Sports field managers at all levels are increasingly being asked, or in some cases mandated, to reduce or even eliminate synthetic fertilizers and pesticides applied to natural turf-grass playing surfaces. When faced with the prospect of reducing traditional inputs, AND maintaining acceptable playing surface quality, sports field managers know that 'going green' is easier said than done. During our 1/2-day course, you will hear Rutgers faculty and a veteran practitioner discuss how to implement organic techniques to manage sports fields as well as proven ways to reduce synthetic pesticide inputs.
