This live version of Golf Course Management’s monthly column "Verdure," will distill published research into a quick set of facts.
Turfgrass faculty at universities have many different jobs, one of which is compiling turfgrass research into lengthy and highly technical research papers. Published in scientific journals, these types of papers don’t tend to make for casual nighttime reading. What they do, however, is provide trickle-down science that you can apply to your golf course. Whether it's turfgrass colorants or nematodes, the solution you are using probably came from a detailed multi-year study. Join us for an hour of condensed information, as some of our top publishing research scientists present one or two research slides with facts and figures you can use – from herbicide resistance to nematodes. We’ll cover four types of research findings with Brosnan, Martin, Patton and Reynolds in one fast hour.
