PCNB Action Alert – Comments Due January 6

The below message is sent on half of GCSAA.


U.S. EPA is proposing to cancel all registrations for the fungicide PCNB. The comment period is open until January 6, 2023 for you to make your voice heard on this pending decision, and GCSAA has an action alert here, where we make it easy for you to submit a comment to EPA. We need as many benefits letters sent to EPA as possible if we want this decision to be reconsidered. The action alert guides you on what information is needed in your letter.

View the action alert here.

GCSAA Quarterly Briefing – The Q4 Government Affairs Quarterly Briefing was recently held. An Amvac representative talked about the proposed cancellation of PCNB. You may listen to the recording in the Learning Hub of gcsaa.org if you want more background information on the proposed PCNB cancellation. The quarterly briefing can be visited here.

In Memoriam: John Marman

The following message is sent on behalf of GCSANC Preferred Partner, West Coast Turf


The West Coast Turf Family has suffered a tragic loss. On Sunday, August 14th, 2022, John Marman, our VP of Sale and Marketing, passed away.

John started with West Coast Turf at age 24, and for the last 27 years rose to be our Vice President of Sales and a leader in our industry.

He leaves behind his sister, Danielle Scardino, sister, Sue Hanks, and his 11-year-old son, Knox, the light of his life.

He was a friend to all. There are no words that can describe the terrible grief and pain his loss brings to all of us in the West Coast Turf Family.

The GCSANC Board of Directors and staff extend heartfelt condolences to John’s family, friends, co-workers, and all whom he touched.
