The drought of 2012 has taken a toll on many lawns across Iowa. David Minner, ISU Extension and Outreach turfgrass specialist, estimates that most neighborhoods have approximately 25 to 50 percent of the lawns showing some degree of turf loss from the drought and of the injured lawns approximately 25 to 50 percent of the turf in each lawn has been killed.

David Minner, turfgrass specialist with Iowa State University Extension and Outreach, offers lawn care practices Iowans should consider as local agencies enact voluntary water conservation programs to reduce water consumption and relieve strain on city water supplies. Minner will discuss this topic during a webinar July 20.
