Check out our team’s latest efforts in educating the public about our work. We have an upcoming presentation on irrigation from Dr. Dan Sandor and a research report with results from our Regional Optimization of Roadside Turfgrass Seed Mixtures project.

The University of Minnesota Turfgrass Science group is currently conducting research on roadside turfgrasses. We recently initiated a regional mixture trial that is taking place in seven locations across Minnesota. Our primary objective is to inform the Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) about the appropriate species and constituent mixture percentages that are suitable in different regions of Minnesota.
A University research team led by Professor Eric Watkins is working to promote healthy roadside turfgrass. The current issue of Catalyst from the Center for Transportation Studies has an article that describes the project.
