Turfgrass irrigation research at the UMN Landscape Arboretum

By Shane Evans

The University of Minnesota Landscape Arboretum is home to several model landscapes, gardens and research projects.  With funding from the Metropolitan Council and the Minnesota Clean Water, Land and Legacy Amendment, Turfgrass Science team members, led by Dr. Dan Sandor, now at Virginia Tech University, installed an experiment to determine the effectiveness of various smart irrigation controllers and technologies in 2019. The purpose of this article is to give a brief introduction of the project and what we hope to learn from it.
