The MSU Turf School is an intensive four-day course December 14-17 designed to teach the basics of turfgrass science as well as the practical techniques of managing turfgrass.  The school will be “team taught” by MSU turfgrass faculty and staff.  The curriculum is designed to deliver a wide range of turfgrass management topics including basic soils and soil management, turfgrass species identification, selection and physiology, turf establishment and renovation, fertilization, proper pesticide use, and environmental stewardship.  A significant portion of the school is dedicated to weed, insect, and disease identification and management.  The pest management section is delivered in lecture and laboratory settings with hands-on learning emphasized.  The strength of the school lies within the depth of the turfgrass faculty at MSU. This will provide an excellent opportunity for one-on-one interaction between participants and the MSU turfgrass faculty. This is your chance to get to know the MSU Turf Team - all team members instruct, that includes…..Vargas, Rogers, Crum, Frank, Nikolai, Merewitz, Gilstrap, Smitley, Hathaway, Dykema, & Davis - if you know the name but not the face, this is your chance to meet the team and get all your questions answered!
