Hot Topics at a Hot Field Day!

Thanks to all the 530 attendees and 32 exhibitors who attended the Midwest Regional Turfgrass Field Day Tuesday (July 19, 2011) at the W.H. Daniel Turfgrass Research Center in W. Lafayette, IN. We had golf and lawn research tours in the morning, two afternoon tours, and one afternoon workshop and addressed many current topics including new products, herbicide injury to trees and ornamentals, diseases, and more. We heard many good comments regarding the field day and the education provided. The only bad comments were about the temperature and humidity outside. We hope to have a cooler day in 2012.

On behalf of the Midwest Regional Turf Foundation, thank you to all of those who attended!

If you didn’t get a chance to attend this year, we encourage you to pencil in July 17, 2012 on your calendar and attend next year. Numerous research tours and workshops in addition to an outstanding trade show will be available again in 2012.

If you have any questions, comments or suggestions for 2012 let us know: or


Aaron Patton, Turfgrass Extension Specialist and Executive Director of the Midwest Regional Turf Foundation
