Turf Irrigation Management
The Turf Irrigation Management is designed for landscape professionals who are responsible for the maintenance of large turf areas. The workshop teaches the basic biology of turfgrass, environmental and cultural factors that affect irrigation, irrigation auditing and scheduling, and problem solving skills. Instruction includes hands-on catch can placement in the field, and the simple calculation of the actual in-field precipitation rate. From there the students will learn how long to schedule run times on stand-alone field satellite stations for year round turf (Bermuda and Bermuda over-seeded with rye).
Participation is FREE. Seating is limited. Registration is required.
