President's Message - Fall 2016

Monday, December 5, 2016

By Mark Slavik, Residex/Turfgrass


Fall is finally here! This summer has certainly been one of the more challenging years with thirty plus days of 90 degrees and over. Depending upon your geography, there was spotty to zero rain with plenty of stressed out turf as well as a variety of diseases and insects. OLCA is always looking for ways to keep you informed on current and local industry issues. If you are not a member, I strongly urge you to join the OLCA. We will keep you up-to-date on information including, but not limited to:


Lawn Care Seminars

We had record attendance at both of our locations. Northeast Ohio in Wooster and a Central Ohio location in Columbus. We strive to tailor the educational topics based on your feedback and what is happening in our industry. Discounted rates are available for members.


A link to turf videos

These are very well done by Joe Rimelspach and Todd Hicks from the Plant Pathology Department at OSU. They provide tips on topics relative to the season. These short videos are always available through a link on our website.



We provide articles and information on pertinent topics in the industry.


Plant diagnostic testing through The Ohio State University

These are just a few ways we continue to support our industry with up-to-date information. Once again, I urge you to learn more about what OLCA has to offer. Please visit or visit us on Facebook.

We would also encourage any feedback or ideas to better OLCA. Please feel free to contact one of our Board members anytime.

I hope everyone has a successful and fruitful Fall!
