|Rose rosette disease is one of the subjects being|
discussed at this year's IPM Seminar
Our goal is to help you to learn things that you will actually be able to put to work in your daily profession as a pesticide applicator. As always you will receive five CEU credits for the day. The CEUs are good for either structural or agriculture (3A) licenses. The focus of this training is traditionally on pests of turf and ornamentals; but if you work for a pest control company that does T&O work, you should find this training very useful and appropriate.
This year's speakers include:
- Janet Hurley providing information about changes coming to EPA labels;
- Dr. Matt Elmore, will tell us how to tackle tough Texas weeds;
- Laura Miller, horticulture agent from Tarrant County, will discuss the relatively new rose rosette disease and its management;
- My long-time colleague, Dr. Allen Knutson, will provide some background on how biological control has been used in outdoor IPM programs for both insects and weeds;
- and I will discuss the often tough problem of scale insects and their control.
|Over 300 people typically attend the Fall IPM Seminar each |
year for the good speakers, CEUs and a good lunch
(in that order, we hope).
I'm especially pleased this year to be able to introduce Dr. Matt Elmore as our new turfgrass specialist, following the retirement last year of Dr. Jim McAfee. Matt knows he's got big shoes to fill, but is ready and eager to meet all of you in the industry and learn about the challenges of turfgrass management in our part of the country. If any of you get the chance to meet him anytime soon, give him a warm Texas welcome.
