Athletic Turf Workshop Planned
University of Georgia experts will discuss ways to manage sports fields better, including sessions on:

  • Common sports field problems.
  • Cultivation and fertilization.
  • Insect management.
  • Disease prevention and control.
A $10 fee covers a hot box lunch and a visit to a high school football field to see some problem situations. Commercial pesticide credit hours have been applied for in categories 21 and 24.

Preregistration by June 19 is required. The workshop will begin with 8:30 a.m. registration in the Perry Agricultural Building at 733 Carroll Street. Classes will start at 9 a.m. and end at 3 p.m.

The Perry ag building is a single-story brick building near downtown Perry. From I-75, take Exit 135 east toward Perry. Turn left at the first light onto Courtney Hodges Blvd. The building is on the left about a mile from the light, just past the railroad tracks.

For more information, call Houston County Extension office in Perry at (478) 987-2028.
