As one of the most widely known turfgrass research programs in the world, the National Turfgrass Evaluation Program (NTEP) has generated a large volume of turfgrass evaluation data over the last several decades, including data on fine fescues. The Turfgrass Science team is working with researchers from the Computer Science Department and U-Spatial to display this information in a better way to help consumers choose which fine fescue cultivars to plant in their yards.
Please join the Metropolitan Council and the University of Minnesota Turfgrass Science group for Part 2 of our webinar series on Watering Wisdom: Growing a Healthy Lawn with Less Water. The topic of this installment is "Learning to Control Your Irrigation Controller".
Check out our team’s latest efforts in educating the public about our work! We have two webinar videos and an article to share.

When I was a golf course superintendent, I frequently used before and after photos to show progress. The key, of course, was to remember to take the “before” photo. I can remember many times wishing I had a particular photo because either I couldn't remember how something looked, or knew that we made progress but wasn't sure how much.
