More than 150 green industry professionals and enthusiasts converged in Dallas for a showcase tour of the latest Texas A&M AgriLife developments in resilient lawns, sports fields and landscapes.
The annual Texas A&M Turfgrass and Landscape Field Day is held in a different location each year by Texas A&M AgriLife Research, the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service, and Texas A&M University alongside a number of public and private event sponsors.
The 2018 event featured presentations by 16 Texas A&M AgriLife researchers, professors and extension specialists. They reviewed the latest research and sustainable management practices for optimal turfgrass and landscape performance.
Other field day presentations covered disease diagnosis, landscape water efficiency, turfgrass health, insect pests, weed management, irrigation and fertilization.
A barbecue lunch and trade show featuring event sponsors rounded out the afternoon inside the new “water education building” — one of two new buildings on the reconstructed Dallas center campus.
Through the application of science-based knowledge, AgriLife Extension creates high-quality, relevant continuing education that encourages lasting and effective change.
