UGA 2016 Turfgrass Field Day

Early Bird Registration Extended

Geared for all segments of the turfgrass industry, the  UGA Turfgrass Field Day will be held on August 4, 2016 on the UGA Griffin Campus. The day includes information on how to care for your lawn or your golf course from UGA researchers and extension specialists. Field day includes such topics as controlling turf insects like mole crickets and white grubs and turf pests like crabgrass and other turf weeds.


Field days also include information on newly released UGA turfgrasses including tall fescues that were bred especially for Georgia conditions. There are also updates on the Seashore Paspaulum breeding program at UGA. This turfgrass is especially popular along the coast as it can be irrigated with salt water.

There is always an excellent BBQ and chicken lunch followed by displays and demonstrations of the latest turfgrass industry equipment.


The Georgia Dept. of Ag. has approved the program for 4 hours of Georgia pesticide recertification in commercial categories 21, 24, and 27, and 1 hour in private category 10.  Surrounding states have also been approved (AL-10, NC-3, SC-4, TN-3), so if you hold a license in another state you will be able to earn credit there too.  Also, the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America (GCSAA) has awarded the field day 0.3 Education Points.


Register before Friday, July 22nd for the discounted price of $65. After Friday, cost is $80.
