Welcome to Turf Diseases. We encourage you to view our site and hope that you find the information useful, but please note that we do have a few rules for those who want to participate in the discussion or use our materials.
Disclaimer– The views expressed on Turf Diseases are that of each individual author and do not necessarily express the views of Turf Diseases. In other words, if you have a problem with something posted on this site, please contact the author of that post or comment. We are simply a vehicle for pulling thoughts and ideas together.
Copyright – All content, including but not limited to images, on this blog is owned by the individual author and written consent to use their material is required. This includes blog posts, images, and ideas that are expressed by each author. For articles and images uploaded by “Turf Diseases“, please contact us to receive written consent to use these materials. In most cases, permission will be granted as long as the use is non-commercial. Just because we require permission to use our materials for commercial purposes, we ENCOURAGE you to link to our site and the materials in it from your website, blog, facebook page, twitter account or similar vehicle for information dissemination.
Comment Guidelines – We encourage our readers to provide comments on the site and hope that you will find that the authors will respond to any questions that they can in a timely manner. However, due to the amount of spam and other irrelevant information that is posted in the comments of various blogs, Turf Diseases reserve the right to remove malicious or hurtful comments that don’t add to the site. We will do our best NOT to remove comments and in some cases will simply close the discussion to prevent things from getting out of hand. Please don’t email us complaining about your comments being removed…we probably won’t respond!
Guest Posts – We love to hear from our readers and will occasionally have posts from outside guests. If you have an idea for a story or would like to write a relevant blog post, please contact us. Please note, however, that we do have certain guidelines that must be adhered to in order to post a blog; primarily that it must be original content that is not posted anywhere else.
Advertising – While this blog’s primary purpose is to educate and inform turfgrass professionals with their disease problems, we recognize that we have a great opportunity to support turfgrass research as well. So with that in mind, the site does allow various companies and organizations to place ads on the site. We also encourage these groups to provide other sponsorship opportunities that will help us generate funds to support graduate student research projects in turfgrass science. It should be pointed out, however, that ads on this site DO NOT serve as an endorsement of any products or services being advertised.
Turf Diseases reserve the right to amend, append or otherwise modify these policies.
