This field day is designed for both beginners and veterans interested in turfgrass management, including those who work for golf courses; parks and recreation departments; school athletics and grounds maintenance teams; professional lawn care services; landscapers; garden centers; sod producers; and institutional grounds maintenance companies. Whether you’re a golf course superintendent or a homeowner who wants the perfect lawn, there’ll be something for you at a University of Georgia Turfgrass Field Day. Come and get the latest information on how to care for your lawn or your golf course from UGA researchers and extension specialists. Field day includes such topics as controlling turf insects like mole crickets and white grubs and turf pests like crabgrass and other turf weeds. Field days also include information on newly released UGA turfgrasses including tall fescues that were bred especially for Georgia conditions. There are also updates on the Seashore Paspaulum breeding program at UGA. This turfgrass is especially popular along the coast as it can be irrigated with salt water.There is always an excellent BBQ and chicken lunch followed by displays and demonstrations of the latest turfgrass industry equipment.

We hope to see you there!!
