The 2014 GTI Research Day & Golf Networking Event was held yesterday at the Guelph Turfgrass Institute.
This year's field day began with research plot tours highlighting the current research being conducted by University of Guelph and OMAFRA researchers including new turf species and cultivar evaluation, turf disease management strategies, fertility trials, drought tolerance and water conservation, biological control of weeds and diseases, new formulations and management strategies for low risk herbicides in lawn care, improving golf course winter hardiness, tree disease management and the annual and perennial trial garden. Participants also had the opportunity to meet current students in the Associate Diploma in Turfgrass Management program to discuss internship and employment opportunities for the 2015 season. Following the event, a lunch/golf networking event was held at the new Victoria Park Valley Golf Club.
Thanks to all who made this event possible and so successful!
