Presentation topics ranging from soil fertility, battling Microdochium Patch and the massive remodel project of Rolling Hills Country Club will all be part of the 72nd edition of the annual conference of the Northwest Turfgrass Association, set for Oct. 28-30 in Walla Walla.

Dr. Elizabeth Guertal, a professor of turfgrass management and soil fertility at Auburn University, will give a presentation on her areas of expertise, including a talk during the Monday session on “Thatch and Organic Matter Management.” Her Tuesday presentation will be “Myths and Facts in Soil Fertility.”

The entire turfgrass research team from Oregon State University will be attending. Dr. Alec Kowalewski, Clint Mattox and Brian McDonald will be making presentations on Microdochium Patch and how to survive with less fungicides.

Bob Vaughey, the superintendent at Rolling Hills Country Club in Los Angeles, will be joined by architect Nick Schaan of DMK Design to talk about working together on their massive remodel project.
