Turf Irrigation Management

Focus: Maintenance of large turf areas.  TWO DIFFERENT CLASSES in 2014!

The Spring Class (Thurs., March 27th) specifically covers hands-on catch can placement in the field and simple calculation of actual in-field precipitation rates. From there the students learn how long to schedule run times on stand-alone field satellite stations for year round turf (Bermuda and Bermuda over-seeded with rye).

The Fall Class (Thurs., September 25th) focuses on the basic biology of turfgrass, turfgrass I.D. tips, environmental/cultural factors that affect irrigation and problem solving skills.
