Know Your Audience: Strategies for Discussing Pest Management

Public pressure regarding pesticide use has increased to the extent that many athletic field managers are now prohibited from using pesticides altogether. Many professionals feel comfortable talking about the merits of pesticide use with colleagues but fall short when discussing the topic with those outside the green industry. Learn effective ways to confidently communicate the benefits of pesticide use with your facility’s decisionmakers, stakeholders, and the general public.

Dr. Brosnan is a Professor in the Plant Sciences Department at the University of Tennessee (UT) and Director of the UT Weed Diagnostics Center. His research focuses on controlling unique and problematic turfgrass weeds, particularly phenotypes with resistance to herbicides.

Dr. Brosnan serves as an advisor to the Tennessee Turfgrass Association Board of Directors, and he is actively involved in the Weed Science Society of America, Southern Weed Science Society, GCSAA, and STMA. He has consulted at multiple venues on the PGA Tour (including several major championship host sites) in addition to National Football League franchises. Dr. Brosnan received a B.S. in turfgrass science from Penn State University, an M.S. in plant, soil and insect sciences (turfgrass) from the University of Massachusetts.

We start at 5:00 p.m. with a social hour, followed by Dr. Brosnan’s presentation at 6:00 p.m., and dinner at 7:00 p.m.
