The theme of the 18th annual Ontario Turfgrass Symposium  is ‘The Challenge of Green.’ Speakers from both industry and academia will be on hand at the event scheduled February 18-19, 2009 at the University of Guelph’s Rozanski Hall.

Recent government policies that require new insight and skills have placed demands on turf managers. Sessions will provide current information on the complexities of maintaining healthy turf in today’s more restrictive growing environment. Sports and recreation staff, lawn care operators, golf course workers and nursery sod growers can all benefit from the many topics including the economics of the turf industry, new pest and disease controls, safety issues and other industry-related topics.
