Seeding of New Sports Turf Research Area

August 18, 2015

The final grading of the new research area was completed on August 14.  Thanks to Derek York of Bush Turf for bringing in laser guided equipment to get it just right.  The seeding took place on Saturday and Sunday the 15th and 16th.  It is now completely finished. Thanks as well to Chance and Stacee Millett who helped with the seeding. We are hoping that there are no heavy rains until the grass is up.  Dan will put up some go pro segments in a couple of weeks.  Anyone in the area that would like to see it can stop out any time 8 to 5 Monday through Friday.
