Turf Rundown – TN Turf Tuesday

The University of Tennessee Turfgrass Program is hosting a digital learning series running from May through October. The second episode focuses on sports turfgrasses. Sports fields create unique management challenges for turfgrass managers. Stresses related to foot and vehicular traffic can greatly complicate pest management decisions, and in certain parts of the United States chemical options for pest management on sports fields are limited. This presentation will provide attendees a tour of on-going research at the University of Tennessee Center for Athletic Field Safety to maximize the quality of warm- and cool-season turfgrasses used on sports fields to thereby reduce pest infestation.
