The Turfgrass Program conducts research in order to make recommendations to District superintendents.
Previous research includes fungicide trials at the Three-Hole Sunshine Course to evaluate product performances against diseases such as dollar spot and brown patch. Trials are conducted on fairway and greens with creeping bentgrass. Additional fungicide research is conducted off-site.
The Turfgrass Program staff has also studied golf course issues such as putting green moss control, product comparisons of biostimulants and fungicide programming for dollar spot control.
