Dr. William Crow discusses test plot results at the University of Florida’s Plant Science Research Center. Crow has been testing nematicides (specifically fluensulfone) on golf course turf.

I was in Florida last week to attend a nematode control meeting put on by Quali-Pro. The product the company has coming down the line will be available in about 8 months, so I can’t go into it quite yet, but they think they have something that is going to do superintendents a lot of good.

I can tell you the product is related to Quali-Pro parent company ADAMA’s Nimitz for the ag sector… (and not that you would, but obviously don’t try using Nimitz on turf, that’s not what it’s made for.) Dr. Billy Crow is currently evaluating test plots for this new product at the University of Florida’s Plant Science Research and Education Facility in Citra, Fla. Research began in 2008.

We’ll continue to follow this story as it develops, including a video interview with Quali-Pro’s Rick Grant, which we’ll post soon.
