The 1998 University of Illinois Turfgrass and Landscape Field Day has been scheduled for August 19. This annual event provides up-to-date information and education to all professional turfgrass, nursery, landscape, and garden center personnel. This event is also an opportunity to visit the Landscape Horticulture Research Center and the Hartley Selections Garden.
Field Day activities will begin at 8:30 a.m.; results of current turfgrass, nursery, and landscape research will be displayed and explained during morning sessions. The afternoon program will feature a tradeshow, equipment demonstration, and workshops and classes. U of I horticulturists, educators, plant pathologists, and entomologists will be available to discuss research and answer questions. Bring samples of your plant problems for examination.
