University of Tennessee Institute of Agriculture launches Turf Tuesdays
The University of Tennessee Institute of Agriculture began a new digital learning series on May 5, titled Tennessee Turf Tuesday. The free series will consist of a live webinar on the first Tuesday of each month from May through October, with each session focusing on a different area of turf management.
The sessions will feature the latest research from faculty, staff and students in the UT Turfgrass Science and Management Program. Each webinar will be live from 11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. EDT; however, they will all be recorded and archived for later viewing. There is no cost to attend.
Continuing education units from the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America and Sports Turf Managers Association will be offered for live webinars. Additionally, pesticide recertification points for Tennessee, Kentucky, South Carolina, Mississippi and Texas applicators will be available on live webinars.
“We are excited to expand learning opportunities to the many individuals working in the turf industry,” said Jim Brosnan, series organizer and professor in the UT Department of Plant Sciences. “We think that by delivering our research directly to interested viewers, we can better help them address turf management concerns.”
Session topics are as follows:
May 5 – Introduction to Tennessee Turf Tuesdays and Poa Control Wrap Up
June 2 – Integrated Management Practices for Sports Fields
July 7 – Have You Considered BlueMuda?
August 4 – Zoysiagrass for Golf and Sports Turf: What’s Possible?
