Speakers from both the turf industry and academia will provide valuable insight at the Ontario Turfgrass Symposium (OTS) 2009. The University of Guelph will host the 18th annual symposium, themed ‘The Challenge of Green,’ on Feb. 18th and 19th, at Rozanski Hall.

Recent government policies require turf managers to have new insights and skills. Delegates will receive current information on the complexities of maintaining healthy turf in today’s more restrictive growing environment. Sports turf, facilities, golf and lawn care professionals and nursery sod growers will hear about the economics of the turf industry, new pest and disease controls, safety issues for staff, and other industry-related topics.

Along with learning sessions, turf industry leaders and associated staff will have the opportunity to network with colleagues by sharing success stories and strategies to create proper conditions for healthy turf. OTS is used by industry members to discover the best practices coming from Ontario, Canada and internationally.
