Prairie Turfgrass Research Centre Announces Turf Research Field Day

13.05.27-PTRC.logoThe Prairie Turfgrass Research Center (PTRC), in collaboration with its partners and supporters, would like to announce a new joint educational event coming to Olds College this August called “Turf Under Research Field Day” or ‘T.U.R.F. Day’ for short. by PTRC's recent NSERC grant, efforts to provide interactive technology transfer from our research findings is now possible and we are very pleased to extend a complimentary invitation to all those involved with professional turf management and who are interested in attending a no-cost education and networking event.

The inaugural event is scheduled to take place from 10:00am to 3:00pm on Thursday, August 27th.  In addition, we are planning to host a two hour pesticide seminar in the morning from 8:00am - 10:00 am which will have CEU's for those who wish to make a full day of it.  The day will include plots and facility tour, lunch, as well as CEU delivery at no charge.  

Come and meet the new research staff at your research centre at Olds College and hear some of the latest findings.  Katie Dodson, Laura Chavez and others will lead tours and be your hosts for the day.  Clever timing allows attendees to get morning jobs done, drive to Olds and be home for dinner!  An indoor event is planned if weather is inclement.

Detailed event and sign-up information is forthcoming but mark the date now.  Feel free to let your fellow superintendents and sportsturf managers know about this  exciting new opportunity this coming August.
