New Publication for Nurseries
When I am out and about visiting nurseries, I can usually find someone spraying glyphosate around the edges keeping the place clean. About 9 out of 10 times the applicator is applying the herbicide incorrectly. Usually the person applying the spray is standing over the weeds drowning them in herbicide wasting time and money in labor and product. That prompted me to publish "Proper Use and Handling of Glyphosate in the Nursery" Here is the link. http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/ep459 If you would like to read it for a Core CEU credit take this link, read the article, and take the quiz. If you pass the quiz I'll send you a CEU form. www.tiny.cc/CEUS Just scroll down to the last article on the page.
