2012 Virtual Field Day Introduction

In previous years we’ve offered the MTGF and U of MN Turfgrass Field Day here on campus at the Turfgrass Research, Outreach, and Education Center. This year we are trying something different by offering the Field Day Virtually. Through the efforts of our team here in the Turfgrass Science Program, and with the help of the University of Minnesota Extension, we have put together a great lineup of short (3-5 min) videos from our educators and students. These videos will be made available to you daily (one per day) starting on September 17th, and ending on October 1st.

Please view this video introduction to the Virtual Field Day by Associate Professor and Extension Turfgrass Specialist Dr. Brian Horgan. As this is our first attempt at offering the Field Day in a virtual format, your feedback is encouraged and appreciated to help direct Field Days in the future. Thank you for your time and we look forward to presenting the Virtual Field Day to you.
