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:
