We are proud to announce a turfgrass specific educational field tour this summer 2014. The tour will take place in the grass seed capital of the world, Oregon’s Willamette Valley, where the majority of the world’s cool season turf-grasses are grown. Professional turfgrass experts will be in attendance such as Leah Brilman, PhD from Seed Research among others, who will present on the next generation of turfgrasses and topics such as soil fertility and plant health. A significant incentive to attend this trip is that six Continuing Education Credits (CECs) will be available.
