Event description
Ever wonder where the plants in the lawns you manage come from or if they have value? Come find out about those plants we often call weeds.

About this event

Proper identification of summer weeds along with the proper timing and use of pest management tools is an important part of a landscape contractor’s effort in maintaining the health of a landscape as well as that of the environment and those that live in that environment. This class is one that will help landscapers correlate the problem with the correct method of management. By popular demand we will also look at some of the Ethnobotany involved with many of the weeds to create perspective of why the plants are here. Often times understanding some of a plant’s history and use helps us decide whether to keep it or not. This class will also help folk managing weeds in Right of Ways, fields, or pastures.

2 NCDA&CS pesticide credits in categories D, L, N, O and X have been approved for this class as well as 2 hours of Technical Landscape Contractor credits.
