Video from the Farm!
I had the opportunity to interview Mr. Mark Langner, director of agronomy at FarmLinks, about the exchange of information that takes place between himself and the golf course superintendents that have been through the "On The Course Tour." Mark not only believes that the experience offers insight to management practices for the attendees, but is a valuable tool for Mark, keeping him abreast of different techniques employed by his fellow superintendents. See for yourself what Mark has to say!
Naturalized project at FarmLinks
I caught up with Dr. Scott McElroy, professor of weed science at Auburn University, to discuss a trial being implemented by BASF Turf & Ornamentals and Auburn to evaluate different management practices with BASF chemistries. Often, these naturalized areas are one of the most neglected and misunderstood areas on a golf course. Through this trial, we hope to shed some light on what practices or combination of practices will benefit these non-play areas. Listen as Scott explains some of the treatments being made!
