VTC Conference set for January

Industry News

The event will take place Jan. 17-20 in Fredericksburg, Va.

| October 7, 2010

The Virginia Turfgrass Council (VTC) Annual Turf & Landscape Conference and Tradeshow will take place January 17–20, 2011 at the Fredericksburg Conference & Expo Center.

While the program continues to rely heavily on turfgrass researchers from Virginia Tech, this year’s program will also feature presentations from Bruce Martin and Lambert McCarty (both from Clemson University), David Shetlar (Ohio State University) and Roch Gaussoin (University of Nebraska), as well as Darin Bevard and Keith Happ, from the United States Golf Association.
 
Mark Prieur (of the Ontario Golf Superintendents Association) is slated to relate his experiences with Canada’s increasing regulations concerning fertilizer and pesticide use, an issue of growing concern to many American turf managers.

 The VTC conference’s educational program this year includes dedicated tracks for golf-course maintenance, sports-field management, sod production and lawn care/landscaping (many with GCSAA and STMA recertification credits). The event also offers classes for applicators needing pesticide recertification.
