Across the great state of Georgia, school kids, college students, and administrators are preparing for the 2014-2015 school year. It’s fitting, then, that one of the greatest educational programs of the agricultural industry will take place next week. On Wednesday, August 6 UGA’s Griffin Campus will host the UGA Turfgrass Field Day, a series of educational seminars focusing on lawn care, agricultural growth, and turfgrass management.
Who Should Attend?
While many agricultural education seminars are geared toward turfgrass industry professionals, UGA’s Turfgrass Field Day is open to all. Homeowners, landscapers, and turfgrass industry professionals have the opportunity to learn the latest wisdom in turfgrass management from some of the top researchers in the industry. Learn useful tips for sod care and turfgrass cultivation, whether you’re tending a single lawn or maintaining grass for a world-renowned golf course.
The UGA Turfgrass Field Day is an excellent opportunity to learn what’s new in the agricultural community. Respected professionals will present their research on turfgrass breeding, establishment, and growth. Guests are invited on both guided and self-guided tours of each research plot. Attendees can look forward to gaining extensive knowledge about:
