Most of us are fed up with the winter that seems to have dragged on forever, or at least crossed the threshold into spring. With warmer weather in sight, the anticipation grows for those wanting to get out there and hit the greens. Researchers like Eric Lyons and grad student Bobby Kerr are studying ways to increase the sustainability of turfgrass systems - along with other plants and crops- in the never ending battle with mother nature. Take a look at the Guelph Mercury article where their research is highlighted. Duane Falk, Ken Carey and Alex Porter are also mentioned as being part of this research.
