MTT - "What is Dead, May Never Die" Dr. Jim Brosnon, TTA 2020 Annual Conference Seminar

In this Episode, I recorded Dr. Jim Brosnon from the University of Tennessee at Knoxville as he gave his talk at the 2020 Tennessee Turfgrass Association Conference. This was an in depth discussion about his research and the results of those research studies. You will hear about recent trends and the challenges with controlling weeds and what you can expect and some practical solutions going forward. Dr. Brosnon is a leader and highly knowledgable in this area and this talk was well attended and highly received. It is a variance from my normal interview based podcasts but as I move into more available content, giving you more resources to refer to is the goal. I hope you enjoy this one. Thanks for listening and if you care to leave a comment or feedback, that would be appreciated. Thanks to the Tennessee Turfgrass Association, The Board of Directors, Chris Sykes(moderator) for their help in the production and distribution of this episode.
