    Turfgrass Field Day

    Date: July 17, 2019

    Location:  Paint Branch Turf Research Farm

    University of Maryland

    College Park, MD 20740

    The University of Maryland Turfgrass Research Field Day will be held this year on Wednesday July 17 from 12:00 to 5:00pm. The event will begin with registration and poster presentations highlighting recent lab projects from the turfgrass pathology group, along with updated information regarding the Maryland Department of Agriculture Nutrient Management and Pesticide Guidelines.

    Following registration, the day will proceed with a three-hour walking tour of ongoing field research projects underway at the research facility. If you are interested in the most recent, cutting-edge research to better manage turfgrass in the region, this event is for you.

    In 2018, the UMD Turfgrass Research Team presented over 30 different field projects including cool and warm season cultivar selection, evaluations of new products for managing turfgrass diseases, and bio-based options for both weed and disease control. Whether you manage home lawns, landscapes, sports fields, or golf courses, this event will have valuable information for you to implement at your facility.

    Pesticide certification and professional fertilizer applicator credits were awarded in 2018 for Maryland, Delaware, District of Columbia, and Virginia. We anticipate similar credit options for the 2019 program. The event ends with a spectacular meal of crab and barbecue with great conversation among friends and colleagues.
