The Guelph Turfgrass Institute is hosting a free Field Day on Thursday, October 9, 2014 from 9:30 am to noon. This event will highlight current research being conducted by University of Guelph and OMAFRA researchers including new turf species and cultivar evaluation, turf disease management strategies, fertility trials, drought tolerance and water conservation, biological control of weeds and diseases, new formulations and management strategies for low risk herbicides in lawn care, improving golf course winter hardiness, tree disease management and the annual and perennial trial garden. Participants will also have the opportunity to meet current students in the Associate Diploma in Turfgrass Management program to discuss internship and employment opportunities for the 2015 season.
Following the event an optional industry lunch and golf networking event will be held at the new Victoria Park Valley Golf Club. The $50 registration fee collected by the club includes lunch, golf and cart with a portion of the proceeds donated to the Ontario Turfgrass Research Foundation to help support future research.
