Turfgrass conference, show scheduled in January

Experts from North Carolina State University will discuss a range of topics related to growing and managing turfgrass during the 2009 North Carolina Turfgrass Conference and Show in late January in Raleigh.

The conference, which is sponsored by N.C. State University and the Turfgrass Council of North Carolina, is scheduled for Jan. 26-29 at the Hilton North Raleigh, 3415 Wake Forest Road.

The event is designed for professionals in the turfgrass industry who manage the turf in areas such as golf courses, athletic playing fields and landscapes. Presentations will focus on topics such as disease, weed and insect control. Presentations on sod production are also scheduled.

The conference also includes sessions that provide the information necessary to obtain and maintain a license to apply pesticides in North Carolina and a trade show.

A number of conference packages are available, with the cost depending on the sessions attended. Early registration ends Jan. 9; after that date, registration fees increase.

Conference program and registration information is available on line through the N.C. State University Center for Turfgrass Environmental Research and Education Web site at http://www.turffiles.ncsu.edu/.
