What is #PoaDay?

#PoaDay is an annual event hosted by members of the turfgrass and ornamental weed science team at the University of Tennessee. The goals of the event are to:

      • ​Make turfgrass managers aware of the emerging problem of herbicide resistance evolving in turfgrass weeds
      • Educate turfgrass managers about the different herbicidal modes of action available for annual bluegrass control 
The event focuses on annual bluegrass control considering that there are more cases of herbicide resistance in annual bluegrass than any other weed species in managed turfgrass systems (Heap 2014). 

Don't Miss #PoaDay on March 28th, 2017 at 9:00 am EST on Facebook Live!

Thanks to generous support from Aqua-Aid and Campey Imants, #PoaDay will be broadcast on Facebook Live instead of being a traditional field day that is attended in person. 

Please visit Aqua-Aid’s #PoaDay event page for more information. Details will also be communicated over over the University of Tennessee Turfgrass Program Official Twitter Feed (@UTturfgrass) as well as the Aqua-Aid Twitter Feed (@AquaAidInc) and Facebook page
