I actually caught that while browsing my news feed. Pretty interesting.

This podcast episode from Frank Rossi with Dr. Jim Brosnan from UT has a lot of info on POA a.

Some of the most interesting part, 86% golf courses in Tenn with a POA annua prevention program had more than 10 POA a plants in a square meter.

Of the POA annua plants, 64% were glyphosate (round up) tolerant.

Had a 10 minute conversation with my 17 yr old about stoma, transpiration, and how plants affect the weather. I learned some things and she did too. One on the cool things about living in a rural town is more class offerings on plant and ag sciences in high school. She seems really interested in the subject.. now if I can only steer her into the turfgrass sciences I would be set! :wink:

Stuck Lightbulb

Post by dfw_pilot »

I ran into a stuck outdoor light. It was too tight to unscrew and there was no way to get my grubby fingers around the bulb.

I've performed several surgeries on our iMac's, so I have a couple suction cups. The iMac screen removers double as light bulb removers, haha.

I was listening to Frankly Speaking with Frank Rossi podcast on my morning commute to work today. This was an very interesting interview with Dr. Pete Dernoeden. A few key points:

- they are seeing a lot of GLS on Tall Fescue @ ~45min (@tgreen)
- fine fescue @ ~49min - hard fine fescue was the best(@gravylookout)
- dollar spot models get you close, but the cultivars and wind (micro climates) makes a big difference
- I want to search for his studies on Tall Fescue at 1.5in, 2.5in and 3.5in. Shorter meant more crabgrass and no crabgrass for 3 years on the high hoc. But there was a comment at 43min that tall fescue uses more water. ( @green)
