TN Turf Tuesday - Integrated Management Practices for Sports Fields

Faculty, staff, and students within the University of Tennessee Turfgrass Science and Management program are excited to offer a new digital learning series for 2020: Tennessee Turf Tuesday.

The objective of this series is to provide individuals managing golf courses, sports fields, residential/commercial lawns, and sod farms the latest research on optimizing turfgrass aesthetic and functional quality via sustainable cultural and pest management practices. Participants are elegible for Continuing Education Units and Recertification Credits.

Presenters for this event include: Dr. John Sorochan, Dr. Kyley Dickson, Taylor Williams & graduate students

Overview: 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.
