UMass Extension Turf Program

UMass Turf Research Field Day

Event date/time: 
Wednesday, July 15, 2015 - 8:00am to 1:00pm
UMass Joseph Troll Turf Research Center

Research Field Day is our 'open house', when we invite turf managers and their associates to visit the UMass Joseph Troll Turf Research Center. Participants will have the opportunity to meet and speak with UMass Turf Program staff and to view projects underway. Current turf research includes studies on the biology and integrated management of turf-damaging disease and insects, short- and long-term weed management, fertility, wear tolerance and drought management, as well as a range of National Turfgrass Evaluation Program fine turf trials. Field Day will also feature displays and demonstrations from turf industry vendors. A barbecue lunch will be served.
