Ep 33 Dr Scott McElroy Weed Scientist Auburn University

This episode we welcome back Dr Scott McElroy from Auburn university. Scott appeared in episodes 1 and 22. We have an entertaining chat with a lot of humour and sarcasm just to lighten the mood. Scott was aware of our situation and wanted to bring some joy to the listeners. We talk about what he has been up to and the work he has done with the resist poa working group. We also dive into poa control with resistance and speak on crowsfoot (goose grass) and paspalum control.
