The University of Tennessee Turf & Ornamental Weed Science Team introduced a new website and free mobile app called "Mobile Weed Manual," which is a resource for golf course superintendents, athletic feld managers, lawn care professionals and homeowners to assist green industry enthusiasts in selecting herbicides for use in warm- and coolseason turfgrass as well as an array of ornamentals. End users can search for a weed they want to control, and the app gives advice on which herbicides are most effective.

Matt Madsen of the USDA's Agricultural Research Service (ARS) and representatives from Aquatrols Corp. of America presented new fndings on surfactant seed coating technology this spring at the International Symposium on Adjuvants for Agrochemicals (ISAA).
