Registration now open for popular turfgrass course

The 2010 N.C. State University Turfgrass Short Course is scheduled for the week of Feb. 22, so mark your calendars. This event provides four days of comprehensive turfgrass education and is appropriate for anyone interested in turf, including homeowners, career-changers and professionals needing a refresher.

Lectures are presented by faculty in N.C. State's award-winning turfgrass program, who will cover all aspects of turfgrass management. Successful completion prepares attendees for the Turfgrass Professional Certification program.

The McKimmon Center state-of-the-art classroom settings are intimately sized to allow focused instruction and maximize individual and group learning success. Turf and weed samples, fertilizers, insect identification and control methods are closely examined in the hands-on sessions.

The N.C. State Turfgrass Short Course program is a key building block to any turfgrass or lawn care professional's career. Covering topics from turfgrass selection, weed identification, best management practices to protect available resources and much more. Whether you're just starting out in the lawn care profession or you're a homeowner who is tired of looking at that straggly patch of mud you call a lawn, the Turfgrass Short Course is the best practical how-to education you can get in a one-week study program.

This program is held only once a year and sells out quickly. Contact Dr. Dan Bowman (919.515.2085) to reserve your seat now.
