New topics and tours at the Turf Field Day on July 21

The Midwest Regional Turf Field Day that will be held on Tuesday, July 21 at the W.H. Daniel Turfgrass Research and Diagnostic Center in West Lafayette. A number of additions should make this one of the best field days yet. The field day includes:
