Webinar on app to improve turfgrass purchasing decisions

July 24, 2020

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. Watch a video recording of a webinar with Eric Watkins and Len Kne of U-Spatial describing the progress we are making with this work. This project is part of a grant, Increasing Low-Input Turfgrass Adoption Through Breeding, Innovation, and Public Education, funded by the National Institute of Food and Agriculture, U.S. Department of Agriculture, Specialty Crops Research Initiative under award number 2017-51181-27222.
