    I have the books I used for my licensing cert for treatment application but I am looking for a more specific resource dedicated to turfgrass cultivation.

    Check your local extension service library website. Penn State, UK, Texas A&M, and Purdue all have really good manuals. Fundamentals of Turfgrass Management.

    Im reading Fundamentals of Turfgrass Management right now, only a couple chapters in but good info so far. But since im cheap I bought the 2003 version for 13 bucks off amazon instead of the 2017 80 dollar version.

    Thanks for the info. I am going to check that out. You probably made the smart choice buying the earlier version. I doubt there have been any drastic changes since that time.
