ACKSON SPRINGS, NC — The 2010 North Carolina State University Turfgrass Field Day will take place Wednesday, Aug. 11, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Sandhills Research Station in Jackson Springs. A total of 2.5 NCDA&CS pesticide credits are available.

The Turfgrass Field Day at the Sandhills Research Station is only offered every other year, and offers both the industry and public a chance to view the NCSU Turfgrass Program’s ongoing research trials at this unique site.

Attendees will see research plots and speak directly with NCSU’s faculty and staff. Each session offers the researcher’s insight and findings for current turfgrass demands and ongoing studies. Topics are inclusive of the NCSU research program covering integrated pest management; cultural practices; irrigation technologies; disease, insect and weed control, and more.

The NCSU Turfgrass Field Day registration includes water and drinks sponsored by STI (Smith Turf & Irrigation), as well as an on-site catered luncheon, complete with homemade ice cream. The annual putting contest will provide prizes, fun and a chance to “out putt” dignitaries like Dean Johnny Wynne and Agricultural Commissioner Steve Troxler. The bragging rights from winning the putting contest are good for a lifetime!

The day before the event, Aug. 10, will be the Dr. Art Bruneau Golf Tournament FUNdraiser. It will take place at the Lonnie Poole Golf Course. Raleigh, NC, and registration is now open to participate.
