The Michigan State University Turfgrass Field Day will be held on Wednesday, Aug. 12 at the Hancock Turfgrass Research Center on campus. We’re mixing up field day this year from it’s traditional morning tour format. Instead of rotating through stops from 1-8, this year we will have dedicated times for our researchers to highlight several of their research projects. There will be 12 different presentations covering research for golf, lawn, and athletic field research of 25 minutes in length each. Presentations will begin at 9:00 am and conclude at noon. Attendees will be free to choose which presentations they want to hear and can create their own schedule. Lunch is included in the registration fee.
The morning research presentations have been awarded 3 MDARD Pesticide recertification credits in categories Commercial Core, Private Core, 3A, and 3B.
There are three in-depth, hands-on workshops in the afternoon. Weed walk, Disease ID, and a tour of MSU Athletic Fields. All afternoon tours were awarded 2 MDARD Pesticide recertification credits in categories Commercial Core, Private Core, 3A, and 3B.
For golf course superintendents .30 education points have been awarded for the morning research tour and .20 education points for the afternoon workshops.
