The field day will feature AgriLife Research, Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service and Texas A&M University Department of Soil and Crop Sciences faculty, staff and students.

Topics of discussion will be turfgrass selection and management, irrigation management and drought recovery, pest management, golf course fairway and sports field construction, and new technologies and educational demonstrations.

The program will begin with registration from 7:45 to 8:30 a.m., followed by a welcome and concurrent sessions from 8:45 a.m. to noon. Afternoon events will include a campus athletic facilities tour from 1:30 to 4 p.m. All participants are asked to park at the Thomas G.
