Learn to control aquatic weeds

Chemical

A free webinar will teach LCOs how to fight weeds in the water.

| April 11, 2014

Algae and weeds are common nuisance pests that inhabit water bodies across the country. 
 
These organisms can cause significant aesthetic and agronomic issues. They can form thick mats, scums or turn your water pea green. Also, many algae can produce taste and odor compounds that may create that nasty smell arising from the pond. Some algae have even been documented to produce compounds that can significantly damage irrigated turf. 
 
In "Aquatic Weed and Algae Management, It’s Not Black Magic," an upcoming free webinar hosted by our sister publication Golf Course Industry magazine and sponsored by SePRO, you'll learn: 
 
  • What types of algae and aquatic weeds to watch for
  • How to identify problem areas in your clients' water
  • The most efficient management practices for aquatic weeds 
 
The webinar takes place on Wednesday, April 23 at 12 p.m. EDT. The presenter, Bishop West, is an algae and aquatic research scientist at SePRO in Rocky Mount, N.C.
