188 Participate at 2016 MTGF / UM Field Day

.
The Turf & Grounds Field Day was back on the St. Paul campus this year as the Minnesota Turf and Grounds Foundation once again partnered with the University of Minnesota to produce this event popular event at TROE Center, the UM Trial Gardens and UFore Nursery. The weather was looking like it was going to be an issue less than a few hours before Field Day was set to begin but a major storm blew through just in time for the rain to stop when the UM show began! The Field Day was presented by University of Minnesota faculty and staff working in turfgrass science and horticulture and ran from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. with presentation topics ranging from turfgrass species for natural areas to disease management in turf and trees. Thirteen vendors partipated with outdoor tabletop displays and equipment demonstrations.
