GCI's Super Blog of The Month

General

Check out John Kaminski's blog: Turf Diseases

GCI Staff | June 7, 2010

Turf Diseases is an amazing collaborative effort between six plant pathologists around the country who give frequent and insightful updates on the fun world of fungi in their areas.

John Kaminski of Penn State is the ringleader and most frequent poster, but look for contributions from Megan Kennelly (Kansas State), Jim Kerns (Wisconsin), Lane tate) and Frank Wong (U.C. Riverside) as well. This is a MUST BOOKMARK blog for any superintendent who wants to keep on top of disease management (which pretty much includes all of you!).
