    More Than Bugs in Jugs:  Understanding Biofungicides for Turfgrass Disease Management

    Biofungicides for turfgrass disease control are available, however adoption has been limited due to ineffective or unreliable control.  The goal of this presentation is to explain what biopesticides are, how they work, and to discuss ongoing research looking at ways to enhance efficacy of biofungicides through improvement in the establishment and persistence of introduced biocontrol antagonists applied to athletic fields.

    This webinar has been approved for one (1) MDAR PACE contact hour for Categories 32, 37, Core (L). If you are a Licensed Pesticide Applicator, please provide your license number when you register.
