New website and blog for Purdue turfgrass program

Aaron Patton, Turfgrass Extension Specialist, says the goal is to improve the program’s ability to communicate with its clientele. “Since last fall, we have been working on revising our turf website and creating a new blog that could be used to deliver our Turf Tips eNewsletter. Among our goals for the development of the website were to 1) answer the most commonly asked questions by clientele and contain commonly needed information, 2) allow easy access to information, 3) attract clientele with an attractive website and new website technologies including social media (Blog, RSS feeds, Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube videos), and 4) reflect the quality of the turfgrass science program at Purdue University. The goal is that these new tools will help increase traffic to the website and improve our ability to communicate with our clientele. An additional benefit is that the new social media tools will allow us to remain engaged with our alumni and improve undergraduate student recruitment. We hope that you enjoy our new website and blog.” http://www.agry.purdue.edu/turf/ http://purdueturftips.blogspot.com/
