Episode 36: Winterkill and Recovery
Getting this season's #turfchat  going

Join us as we meet to discuss the scope of winterkill seen throughout the United States and discuss what people are doing to recover. From annual bluegrass to bermudagrass, turfgrass managers are dealing with what looks to be an epic year of winterkill.

Share you stories and images and tell us what you're planning on doing to get the golf course back into a playable condition.

We plan on talking about how many people are there going out into the turf industry and what the market for jobs is currently like.

NOTE TIME CHANGE TO TUESDAY NIGHT

An explosion of discussion on twitter occurred on the topic on Sunday with the conversation lasting from about 10AM to 9PM. We figured we would take advantage of the interest and host an online hangout to discuss this. 

In the interest of discussion, drinking is encouraged during this chat.

Episode 33: Global Soil Survey
September 16th @ 11AM Eastern

Are you interested in finding out how you can reduce fertilizer inputs without sacrificing turf health and playability?

Would you like to have an easy–to–use tool to quantify your progress in achieving sustainability?

Would you like to join with other turf managers around the globe to help the turf industry become more sustainable?

If you've answered "yes" to any of these questions, then you are invited to participate in The Global Soil Survey for Sustainable Turf, a citizen science style initiative whose goal is to develop new, more sustainable soil nutritional guidelines that are based on maintaining turf quality with reduced inputs, reduced costs and reduced environmental impact.

Join us as +Larry Stowell from +PACE Turf and +Micah Woods from the Asian Research Center discuss their latest endeavor to fine tune their recommendations for sustainable fertility programs as part of the Minimum Level of Sustainable Nutrition.

Participants are encouraged to visit the following link to learn more about their survey and to find out how to participate:
