Pesticide Efficacy Before, During, or After Rain Events

Planned post-application irrigation is often necessary for effective control of some turfgrass pests, but an excessive rainfall event, (or two straight months of them), may bring too much of a good thing.  With a particular emphasis on disease control, this seminar will discuss instances when a little extra water is necessary, when and why it can be detrimental in some cases, and what research has been conducted to ascertain the difference.
