Turf Scouting Report, September 20th

They have arrived! Yes, the grubs have finally turned up and I have found some excellent examples this week of efforts by our furry friends that love to dig and eat those juicy white grubs - it's a pity that the efforts lead to surfaces that remind me of Mars. Mapping the problem locations out this year is crucial to next year's planning and making sure that you are managing water properly

Rainfall managed to hit most of us in the last week including central Illinois who were still hitting temperatures above the 90 degree level. Temperatures seem to have moderated and hopefully soil temperatures will follow. Wrapping up club events and looking towards the winter education may be on most people's minds - make sure you get involved in the conferences and seminars - there is no better way to stay current on product safety and efficacy.
