I was wondering if there are any good Home-study Course I can take for lawn disease control. I am to Take over my Fathers business. I cannot get any help and my father only has about 65 custoomers total. I need to learn and my father has just Dumped the business on me. I want to Make it go.

University of Georgia and PLCAA have a program Certified Turfgrass Professional. It goes into diseases fairly well. It also covers insects, soils, establishment, maintenance, etc. It is a well rounded course.
If you are going to take over a Pesticide Application Business you are going to have to be certified in your State, the certification course will cover diseases somewhat. You can also pick up a book on Turf Diseases from or any other book seller.

Good Luck,
