On January 8, 2020, N.C. Cooperative Extension, Currituck County Center will host a training for golf course superintendents. The event will be held at The Currituck Club, located at 620 Currituck Clubhouse Dr., Corolla from 10:00 a.m. to noon with lunch following. Guest speaker Matt Martin from NC State University will present Managing Difficult Golf Course Pests in the Southern & Transition Climatic Region.

This seminar will address the site-specific problems associated with disease, insect, and weed management on golf courses in the Southeastern US. Cost-effective strategies to manage common golf course pests change rapidly. As putting green surfaces or fairway grasses are converted and cultural management strategies are employed, new pest problems emerge, and new products are registered. This workshop focuses on bringing turf managers the latest pest information, new concepts for pest management, and the adoption and use of new pesticide strategies. Participants will learn how to identify and diagnose traditional golf course pest problems as well as new and emerging pest concerns, and concepts for the development and use of integrated pest management strategies.

Attendees will receive two hours of N, L, D, & X pesticide credits. Lunch will be provided, please register at go.ncsu.edu/gcsuperintendent2020  or by phone at (252) 232-2261 to help us get an accurate meal count. For more information on these upcoming events, please contact Adam Formella, Currituck County Agriculture Extension Agent at (252) 232-2261 or by email at Adam_Formella@ncsu.edu.
