I made a visit to Purdue last week to attend a Midwest Regional Turf Foundation Meeting at the Daniel Research Center. The MRTF supports turfgrass research and education at Purdue University. To learn more about the MRTF and a schedule of upcoming events, click HERE.
I also wanted to post a couple of photos from the research center. The first photo is overlooking the research plots. Note the new Purdue baseball stadium in the background:
The next two photos are showing bermuda grass research. The first photo is a study with Riviera and Patriot bermuda grass while the second photo is a spring dead spot study:
Finally, a photo of a drought stress study with warm and cool season grasses:
Please consider supporting the MRTF or your local organization that supports turfgrass research. After all, we need research to keep advancing the turf grass quality on athletic fields!
