Turfgrass research has a field day
Date:9/9/2013

RIVERSIDE, Calif. Which drought-tolerant turfgrasses are suitable for Southern California? Do fungicides really offer plant health benefits? And which herbicide is not safe to use on Kikuyugrass turf?

Turfgrass and landscape professionals will have the opportunity to learn the answers to the above questions as well as the latest innovations in turfgrass research and management on Thursday, Sept. 12, 2013, at the University of California, Riverside. The one-day event, starting at 7:30 a.m. and ending at 2 p.m., will be held at the university's Turfgrass Research Facility, 1060 Martin Luther King Blvd., Riverside.

The full agenda of the 2013 Turfgrass and Landscape Research Field Day can be found here.

Parking will be available in Parking Lot 30, at the corner of Canyon Crest Drive and Martin Luther King Blvd., from where the Turfgrass Research Facility in Agricultural Operations is a short walk.

The field day will include presentations by turfgrass specialists, horticulturalists, postdoctoral researchers and graduate students. 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; however, homeowners interested in having a better lawn and landscape will also benefit from the field day.

The registration fee for the field day is $90 ($100 on site). Registration includes lunch. Information about registration can be found at http://ucanr.edu/sites/turfgrassfieldday/Registration/. Other information is available at http://ucanr.org/sites/turfgrassfieldday/. Reporters interested in covering the event can attend at no charge.

"UC Riverside is committed to sustaining turf and landscape plants throughout California despite diminishing water resources," said James Baird, a turfgrass extension specialist in the Department of Botany and Plant Sciences, who is leading the field day. "Field Day offers a unique opportunity to both see and hear about different strategies to conserve water, including irrigation equipment and practices, product evaluation, use of recycled water, identification of existing drought tolerant species, and development of improved plants that are better able to stay green with less water."
