Online safety videos (www.ugaurbanag.com) and other videos
(http://tinyurl.com/7nnqqv) make a great 'rainy day' or 'any day'
training.



Super Crew Video Series

The SuperCrew video series brings professional training to your

 UGA Pest Management Handbook
UGA Extension produces an annual Pest Management Handbook. The
handbook has many uses for pesticide applicators. It includes:



Pesticide recommendations for most major pests and crops. This can
include pesticide rates, recommendations on application, post harvest
or re-entry interval and other information.
Pesticide handling and safety information.



The Handbook can be accessed online at http://www.ent.uga.edu/pmh/.
You can also purchase hard copies from this website. UGA Extension
produces two editions  one for homeowners and one for commercial
agricultural businesses (which includes landscapers, nurseries, golf
courses and greenhouses.)



The 2009 Turfgrass Pest Control Recommendations for Professionals will
soon be returning from the printers. The Georgia Turfgrass Association
(GTA) has footed the bill for publishing these recommendations. I hope
agents will have these free guides to Turf pesticides within the
month. The publication is available online now at www.GeorgiaTurf.com.



Soil Testing



Standard soil samples will tell you how to lime and fertilize plants
for best growth. Cost ranges from $6.00 to about $10.00. Bring samples
to your local Extension Office. For more information see this website
http://pubs.caes.uga.edu/caespubs/pubcd/C896/C896.htm



You can also order soil testing kits that allow you to submit samples
through the mail. The $15 kit includes sampling instructions, a soil
sample bag and pre-paid mailer. Visit www.soiltest123.com



Specialized analyses are available for greenhouse or nursery media and
other soils. Cost for these special samples varies with the sample.



Nematode assays identify the presence, numbers and type of nematodes
in the soil around the roots of the plant. Assays are free if we are
troubleshooting or $25 for routine samples.



Pesticide and Chemical analyses cost more ($50-$100 or more) and are
available but are usually not necessary to diagnose most problems.
Consider other factors first.



Water & Media Sampling



Water samples are very useful for greenhouse & nursery operators since
many fertilizers are applied via irrigation. Water quality can greatly
affect the nutrition and health of greenhouse and some nursery crops.
Water sampling is one of the first steps to a good fertility program
in greenhouse crops. For more information go to 
http://pubs.caes.uga.edu/caespubs/pubs/PDF/B1256.pdf. Water and media
sampling can help supply proper information for making the best
decisions in producing plants and preventing and solving problems.



Plant, Insect and Disease Samples



Many problems can be diagnosed over the phone, by email or by bringing
a sample to the Extension office. There may be a charge for some
samples.



Online Weather Data

Weather stations across Georgia monitor air temperature, relative
humidity, rainfall, wind speed and direction, solar radiation, soil
temperature, soil moisture and barometric pressure. This information
is updated every 15 minutes and posted at www.Georgiaweather.net .
Users can get current and historical weather data.

Please share this information with others in the landscape & turf industry!
