Pre-conference highlights: Sustainable Turfgrass Management in Asia 2013
Two Excellent Articles: course maintenance standards and bermudagrass green edges

Slides and Handout from GCSAA Paspalum Webcast

On 7 March, I taught a webcast for the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America (GCSAA) entitled Today's Turf is ... Paspalum.

Paspalum_gcsaa_handoutThe GCSAA has made these slides and the three page handout available for download.

In the webcast, I discussed the two main reasons for using seashore paspalum (Paspalum vaginatum): the excellent salinity tolerance of the grass and its beautiful visual appearance. I also showed where we find seashore paspalum growing in the wild, which has some implications for how we might best manage the grass on golf courses. And I discussed some of the challenges we face in producing fine seashore paspalum surfaces, specifically talking about dollar spot disease and bermudagrass (Cynodon) weed problems.

The GCSAA makes these webcasts, available on a range of topics sure to be of interest to golf course superintendents, free to their members the world over. This is just one of the many benefits of GCSAA membership
