ISU Turf Field Day Recap

July 29, 2016

The 2016 ISU Turf Field Day is in the books, and attendees enjoyed perfect weather, informative talks, and great food. Speakers covered topics including: pollinators, athletic field safety, irrigation audits, putting green organic matter management, how to prune trees on a golf course, weed control for ground ivy, just to name a few topics. The group also participated in the popular and informative weed, disease, and insect walk, and finished with lunch and a trade show with exhibitors. Exhibitors provided demonstrations and answered questions after lunch. We look forward to a bigger field day next year with many new projects being underway!
