Turfgrass and Landscape Research Field Day to be held in California, Sept. 13
Date:9/12/2012

RIVERSIDE, Calif. -- Turfgrass and landscape professionals will have the opportunity to learn about the latest innovations in turfgrass research and management on Thursday, Sept. 13, 2012, at the University of California, Riverside. The one-day event, starting at 7 a.m. and ending at 2:30 p.m., will be held at the university's Turfgrass Research Facility, 1060 Martin Luther King Blvd., Riverside.

Parking will be available in Parking Lot 30, from where the Turfgrass Research Facility in Agricultural Operations is a short walk.

The 2012 Turfgrass and Landscape Research Field Day will include presentations by University of California researchers, US Department of Agriculture researchers, and pesticide regulation experts. The event will give participants an opportunity to interact with industry professionals and researchers and learn more about the care and maintenance of turf and landscape plants. Attendees will include professional turfgrass managers, golf course superintendents, and parks and lawn care professionals.

"With the addition of new research areas, UCR now has a state-of-the-art, second-to-none facility to study irrigation and salinity effects on turfgrass and landscape plants," said James Baird, a turfgrass extension specialist in the Department of Botany and Plant Sciences, who is leading the field day. "UCR is addressing the challenges of maintaining turf and landscape plants with diminishing water resources by identifying: drought tolerance among new and existing germplasm; commercial products that help save water; and best management practices using recycled and alternate water sources for irrigation."
