The past few hurricane seasons have been pretty active for Florida, and if we have learned anything it’s to make sure you are prepared ahead of time! Having a plan in place will make for a quicker preparation time and smoother recovery. And while we do not like to use a disaster to gain your business, we do encourage you keep an inventory of some emergency supplies you need for both preparations and recovery. Keep in mind, power outages after a storm may delay getting product that you need. 2 years ago, Irma left ITP and our partners at Southern Ag (and many of you) without power for almost a week.
As we enter the 2019 hurricane season, if you do not already have a plan set for your course & family, now is the time to get one ready. If you do have one, it's a good time to review the plan with your staff and update as needed.
As a combined effort from Clemson & NC State, "Turfgrass Management after Hurricanes" was released in 2016 after Matthew. This useful article discusses management strategies for turfgrass & trees after a storm. Download the article below!
