UMass Turf Research Field Day
UMass Turf Research Field Day is presented on a biennial basis to highlight the wide range of research projects currently taking place at the UMass Joseph Troll Turf Research Center in South Deerfield, MA as well as on research being conducted at other locations by University of Massachusetts Turf Program faculty, staff, and graduate students.
The UMass Turf Program will continue the long tradition of a Research Field Day in South Deerfield on July 21, 2021 (Rain Date: July 22). Turf practitioners and their associates will have the opportunity to meet and speak with UMass staff and to view projects underway. The event will include a trade show, and exhibits from numerous industry representatives will be featured. All registrants will have the opportunity to enjoy continental breakfast and a hearty cookout lunch.
