UMass Extension Turf Program
The UMass Extension Turf Program is a research-based team of faculty and professional, technical, and support staff. As part of UMass Extension within the UMass Center for Agriculture, Food & the Environment, we strive to address the highest priority needs of turf-related industries as well as the citizens of the Commonwealth. Our mission is to develop, research, gather, and share knowledge on safe, efficient, economically viable and environmentally sound turf management with emphasis on natural resource protection.
The Turf Winter School at UMass is a comprehensive short course uniquely suited for turf practitioners who want to advance in their career, but cannot schedule a two- or four-year program, as well as career changers who want to enter the field of turf management. The Winter School 2020 session dates are January 6 - February 14, 2020. Learn more and apply >
