An Oct. 10 turfgrass and landscape field day for professionals and enthusiasts will offer industry networking opportunities, research facility tours and technical discussions by Texas A&M AgriLife researchers and specialists.

The event will be from 7 a.m.-2 p.m at the Texas A&M AgriLife Research and Extension Center at Dallas, 17360 Coit Road.

Sixteen expert-led sessions will include topics such as herbicide selection for weed management; breeding improved warm-season turfgrass cultivars; controlling insect pests; and methods for proper disease diagnosis.

A full agenda and registration are available online.

“Guests will have time to attend as many as eight of the 20-minute discussions,” said Dr. Lindsey Hoffman, Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service turfgrass specialist in Dallas. “There will be plenty of time for visitors to meet industry and academic experts throughout the event.”

Speakers include Texas A&M faculty and staff from College Station and Dallas who work to address green-industry challenges with cutting-edge science, Hoffman said. Meanwhile, turfgrass and green industry representatives, including chemical and equipment companies, will be on hand for technical information and networking opportunities.
