INDIANAPOLIS – Product training is available online for lawn care operators who want to brush up on Dow AgroSciences Turf & Ornamental products and services. This three-part, interactive course provides key insights on preemergence and postemergence herbicides and applications, as well as insecticides and fungicides.

“We want to help educate lawn care operators on the tools available to help solve their customers’ problems,” says Andy Kaler, product manager for Turf & Ornamental. “This training program is the perfect way for turf professionals to learn our products and offer their customers valuable solutions.”

Each course takes approximately 30 minutes to complete and includes educational training followed by a 20-question quiz. Participants can learn the many benefits of preemergence herbicides, including improved playability on golf courses, reduced hand-weeding in nurseries and clean, weed-free turf and landscapes. They also can brush up on the difference between selective and nonselective postemergence herbicides and learn about disease and insect control and prevention in a variety of settings.
