The annual bluegrass weevil (ABW) has been the most destructive insect pest of short-mown turfgrass in northeastern North America for more than 50 years. In the last three years, ABW populations have been on the move with new detections in Louisville, KY, southern Indiana, and Wisconsin, highlighting the potential for movement of the insect into new regions through accidental introductions. In the epicenter of the weevil’s distribution (metropolitan New York) turfgrass mangers struggle to manage populations from reaching damaging levels. Often multiple chemical applications are need throughout the year to avoid turf loss. Furthermore, the advent of pyrethroid resistance in some populations has created even more challenges to controlling the insect through insecticides. In this presentation I will provide an overview of a new chemistry to the turfgrass industry. Novaluron (Suprado) is an insect growth regulator that inhibits larval development. The latest research that is being conducted at Penn State University on the larvicidal- as well as non-lethal effects on adults will be covered. The talk will cover insecticide trial results and laboratory data.

Rethinking and retooling wetting agent programs for improved performance

Date: Thursday, August 1, 2019
Sponsored Content by: Winfield United Professional

Many current maintenance practices and products are being retooled to gain efficiencies and improve turf performance. Wetting agents are one such product where new methodologies could lead to greater gains. During this webinar, wetting agent basics will be revisited and research discussed. As a result of this, attendees learn alternatives to rates, intervals, products and application methods to gain additional turf benefits and performance from wetting agents.

During the webinar, we will discuss wetting agent performance under wet vs. dry soils, influence of wetting agents on turf firmness, how wetting agents perform under various rates and wetting agent basics.

Speaker: Aaron Johnsen, Regional Sales Director and Director of Technical Services at Winfield United Professional

Lithium Powered: Exploring Innovations in Golf Car Efficiency, Weight Reduction and Turf Protection


Date: Thursday, March 9, 2017
On Demand Available Until: March 9, 2018
Sponsored Content by: E-Z-GO

Join expert presenters for a free webinar on March 9 at 2 p.m. Eastern, as we review the new line of E-Z-GO® ELiTE™ Series Lithium-Powered Vehicles. E-Z-GO is seeking to yet again revolutionize electric golf cars with the introduction of its ELiTE Series lithium golf cars as a fleet offering. Activated by Samsung SDI lithium technology, ELiTE vehicles offer zero-maintenance batteries, a five-year unlimited amp-hour warranty and increased energy efficiency.

We’ll also explore the line’s external testing, which revealed a 59% efficiency edge over competing models, and examine how its lithium batteries — weighing in at less than 15% of the weight of some competitors — can help superintendents improve turf protection.
