Welcome to the Turfgrass Field Day Registration Site!

The UConn Turfgrass Science Program invites you to attend the Fifth Biennial Turfgrass Field Day. The focus of the event will be guided tours of current research studies in the areas of turfgrass management, pathology, entomology, and more. Enjoy a delicious lunch and reconnect with old friends during the event.  Our afternoon program will include three breakout sessions highlighting handdling and field application of beneficial nematodes, sustainable and pesticide-free turf management and a turfgrass disease walking tour focused on identification and cultural and chemical control options. Exhibitors from throughout the region will also be present with product and service information for the turfgrass industry.
