STMA Webinar Series on Field Safety
Dr. Jim Brosnan, Associate Professor in the Plant Science Department at the University of Tennessee will present "Know Your Audience: Strategies for Discussing Pest Management."

Use of pesticides on athletic fields has faced increased scrutiny in recent years. Many field managers feel comfortable discussing the merits of pesticide use to others within the industry but fail to effectively communicate the benefit and safety of pest control with the general public. This presentation will provide training on how to discuss pesticide use with those outside of the green industry.
