Please join Beaufort County Cooperative Extension for these classes on February 24th from 1:00-5:00. Speakers will be Matt Martin, Extension Turf Specialist in the Crop Science Department at NC State University and Gene Fox, Area Horticulture Agent with NC State Cooperative Extension. There will be a total of 4 LDNX credits and 4 “L” NCLCLB credits broken up into two classes on this date. The first 2 hours will focus more on turf IPM and the second 2 hour class will focus on herbicides and cultural practices in ornamentals.

Matt Martin will provide information on effective control for common turfgrass pests found in commercial and residential lawns in North Carolina. Participants will learn how to develop a seasonal pesticide maintenance plan for warm season turf. Understanding how and when to control pests in warm season turf using an IPM approach is critical to long-term success. Managing turfgrass pests using preventative disease, insect, and weed strategies may provide longer pest control with fewer pesticide applications. Participants will learn how to develop specific programs for reduction of disease, insect, and weed activity, taking advantage of cultural, biological and chemical strategies.

In the second session, Gene Fox will discuss weed management in annual color and perennial ornamental beds. This class will go into pre-emergent and post emergent chemical controls as well as cultural controls in landscape beds that can be used in residential and commercial settings. We will also go through the management of several problem weeds for this area, how they come into the beds and what to do.

There is no registration. The classes will be held at the Beaufort County Center located at 155 Airport Road, Washington, NC.
