William Golaski: Use of herbicide now saves labor, fuel later
To the editor:
Let’s talk about the field.
The best defense against weed and bugs in turf grass is a healthy thick stand of grass. This allows minimal room for weed and insects in the turf.
Less weeds, less insects, less need for any type of treatments.
Most organic turf programs call for overseeding one or two times a year. This means more trips with gas-powered equipment to do the overseeding. This entails more material, labor, cost and inferior fields, which add to player injury.
Herbicide one time, or years of work with gas-powered eguipment?
