MNLA/MTGF LAWN CARE FORUM
 
The 2017 MNLA/MTGF Lawn Care Forum  which took place on June 15 featured University of Minnesota Turfgrass Extension speakers which included Sam Bauer (pictured on the left), Dr. Eric Watkins, Dr. Brian Horgan, Jonas Reyes, Jon Trappe and Andy Hollman. Bauer welcomed the group to begin the forum.

More than 50 registered attendees had the opportunity to spend a half-day outside at the University of Minnesota Turfgrass Research, Outreach and Education Center -approximately 10 acres of turfgrass research. The event was a great opportunity to see first-hand what is new in turfgrass research and to also become informed on emerging trends in lawn care.

Revolving stations presented by faculty of the University of Minnesota provided lawn care education for industry professionals.

The stations included:

+ Turfgrass Species and Variety Selection (Andrew Hollman, Senior Research Scientist)
+ Bee Lawns and Management for Pollinators (James Woln, Graduate Research Assistant)
+ Developing a Weed Manag
ement Plan (Dr. Jon Trappe, Post-Doctoral Research Associate)
+ Developing a Fertilizer Management Plan (Sam Bauer, Extension Educator)
+ Irrigation Practices and Technology (Jonah Reyes, Research Scientist)
+ Cultural Programs for Lawns (Dr. Brian Horgan, Professor)

 

 

























 



MISSION STATEMENT

The mission of the Minnesota Turf and Grounds Foundation is to promote the green industry in Minnesota through support of research, education and outreach at the University of Minnesota and elsewhere. The MTGF pursues its mission in various ways. One of these is an annual "Call For Proposals," titled the "MTGF Research Gift Program," whereby researchers, instructors and outreach faculty and staff involved in turf and grounds work may submit requests for unrestricted gifts to support their activities. As a 501(c)(3) corporation, funding approved by the MTGF will not be subjected to overhead or other indirect charges or costs. The dates for submission, review and approval may change on an annual basis as well as the protocol stipulated for the submission of gift requests.
