Making use of nutrients in the soil
Monthly Turfgrass Roundup (June 2013)

An Invitation to the Philippine Turfgrass Forum


I am excited to be a part of the upcoming Philippine Turfgrass Forum, organized by Dr. Amihan Arquiza from University of the Philippines Los Baños (UPLB). The Forum will be held at UPLB on 1 August, with Dr. Arquiza and Tomas Valencia as the other keynote speakers.

My talk on minimum nutrient requirements of putting green turf will introduce the MLSN guidelines and the temperature-based turfgrass growth potential with an explanation of how this system can be applied to golf course putting greens and to other turfgrass areas. I will explain how to ensure the grass is supplied with enough nutrients to produce the desired surface, while avoiding application of unnecessary nutrients. I will also share five easy ways to improve turfgrass performance, based on extensive study of turfgrass conditions and maintenance practices in Southeast Asia.

The Forum is open to the public with advance registration required.
