July 29th 2016: Proper Timing and Use of Companion Crops when Establishing Turf for Urban Situations

Summary:

Weather has been great for the past week with lots of heat and humidity.  Crop stress was eased over the weekend by rain and slightly cooler temps.  This did not stop the Japanese Beetle from establishing a presence all around the state.  Keep an eye out for this invasive species as well as other weeds like giant hogweed and wild parsnip which Mark Renz, this week’s guest, will go over.
