Turfgrass Field Day

Every two years the University of Georgia Griffin Campus hosts the UGA Turfgrass Field Day. This is a very popular event and traditionally drawing more than 800 particapants.

The field day primarily attracts professionals from the turfgrass industry - landscape professionals, golf course superintendent’s, sod producers and the like. But homeowners can garner useful information at the turfgrass field day, too. Homeowners will come away from the day overloaded with useful information.

Field days like this one are designed as educational outreach efforts and this one focuses on improving knowledge of turfgrass practices. Our goal is to educate the public on how to manage their turfgrass, whether it’s on a golf course, park or front lawn, while positively impacting the environment.
