NESTMA to host Strategies for Discussing Pest Management webinar

New England Sports Turf Managers Association (NESTMA) will host a webinar titled “Know Your Audience: Strategies for Discussing Pest Management.” The webinar will be available to be watched any time between October 20 and 30, 2020.

Public pressure regarding pesticide use has increased to the extent that many athletic field managers are now prohibited from using pesticides all together. Most professionals feel comfortable talking about the merits of pesticide use with colleagues but fall short when discussing the topic with those outside the green industry.

In this webinar, James Brosnan, Ph.D., professor of plant science and director of Weed Diagnostic Center, University of Tennessee, will share ways to confidently communicate the benefits of pesticide use with your facility’s decision makers, stakeholders, and the general public.

This webinar has been approved for one (1) MDAR PACE contact hour for Categories 32, 37 and L (Core).
