President’s Newsletter – March 2013

March 2013
ENCTA Members and Colleagues:

ENCTA kicked off our year with our annual pesticide conference at Wayne Community College. Rob Woods hosted the meeting that included 4 hours of education and a great lunch. Special thanks goes to Casey Reynolds, Jim Kerns PhD, Travis Gannon PhD, and Rick Brandenburg PhD all from NC State for their presentations.

Damon Libby hosted our March meeting at Star Hill Golf Club. David Jacob CGCS, spoke on Cultural Practices for Management on Ultradwarf Greens. David did a great job of condensing several hours of information into one hour and even had time to answer everyone’s questions. David’s presentation was followed by some great fellowship prior to lunch and golf.

David Bentley CGCS will host our April meeting at Scotch Hall Preserve on April 18th. Don Riley a Certified Wildlife Biologist, will speak on Native Vegetation Establishment and The Benefits. Don’s presentation will be an opportunity for us all to hear something new that we are not use to dealing with on a daily basis and Scotch Hall Preserve is the perfect setting.

Our fundraising tournament will be on May 16th at Wilson Country Club hosted by Craig Clemmer. Please plan on joining us for this important event where the proceeds help us support turfgrass research, scholarships and other aspects of the turf industry.

I would like to thank all of our 2013 sponsors and the ENCTA board members for their continued efforts to ensure the success of the association. Please visit our website at for more dates and information on our 2013 schedule.

Brian Green,
ENCTA President
