UMass Extension's Turf Management Updates are brief, timely messages on topics of relevance to turf managers in New England. Subject areas include insects, diseases, weeds, nematodes, environmental stress, best management practices, educational opportunities, and general news and announcements. Messages are not confined to a specific schedule, but are instead developed as issues of note arise. Messages are most common during the growing season, but may go out at any time of year. Look for messages for the 2017 season coming soon.
