This session will help participants develop and implement an invasive plant management program. Management tips and strategies will be discussed including herbicide selection and timing, non-chemical strategies and ways to avoid common program pitfalls.
This workshop is Part B of the 2013 Invasive Plant Certification Program. In the last several years, there has been growing interest in invasive plants and their management. While turf and landscape professionals might be very proficient in the development of a weed management program for turf and/or landscape, invasive plant management often reveals many new and unique challenges to these professionals. This 4-day program is intended to help participants meet these challenges when attempting to develop an invasive plant management program as part of their business. A certificate in Invasive Plant Management may be obtained by attending all four sessions and obtaining a passing grade on each. To earn the certificate, sessions A1 - A3 can be taken in any order, but must be taken prior to Session B, Developing an Invasive Plant Management Program. All sessions will be offered annually to facilitate earning the certificate over more than one year’s time. All sessions may also be taken individually.
Cost is $75, $68/person for a group of three or more registrations from the same company. Online registrations are subject to an additional processing fee.
