Aqua Aid is partnering with the University of Tennessee Turfgrass to bring their annual #PoaDay Field Day LIVE. This event, held each spring, allows University of Tennessee to showcase its annual statewide research regarding optimal programs for annual bluegrass control on golf courses, sports fields and residential and commercial lawns.
This year, #PoaDay will be held on March 28 beginning at 9 a.m. EDT. The event will be streamed via Facebook LIVE through the Aqua Aid Facebook Page (https://www.facebook.com/aquaaid) for worldwide viewing. Additionally, the event will be available for On Demand viewing via the Aqua Aid Facebook Page and Aqua Aid website. Viewers will have the opportunity to comment live and have questions answered by presenters.
Discussed at this year’s #PoaDay will be an array of pre- and post-emergence herbicide programs for annual bluegrass control in turfgrass. Additionally, the event will provide education regarding the different herbicidal modes of action used for annual bluegrass control and how to optimize programs to mitigate problems associated with herbicide resistance.
“Given that the issue of annual bluegrass control in turfgrass is relevant to many outside of the Tennessee boarder, we are excited to use Facebook LIVE streaming technology to communicate our findings to a wide audience,” said Dr. Jim Brosnan, associate professor in the Plant Sciences Department at the University of Tennessee (UT) and leader of their new Weed Diagnostics Center.
“At our core, Aqua Aid’s mission is to provide valuable solutions to the turfgrass industry. Supporting the University of Tennessee Turfgrass program to broadcast their annual #PoaDay live and bring these solutions to a worldwide audience made for a perfect partnership,” Aqua Aid COO Sam Green said.
