University of Arkansas, Division of Agriculture
Turfgrass Science Program ( – Turf Tips

We had a great turnout (over 200!) for our Field Day last week, which is pretty remarkable considering the 100 degree plus temperatures that arrived before lunchtime.  Our turfgrass science team truly appreciates the support of the Arkansas turfgrass industry and the large number of folks who made the trip to Fayetteville to attend Field Day.  Below are links to a summary article and a slide show recapping the big day.  Also below is survey information for anyone who attended the 2011 Field Day but did not submit a survey.  If you did not attend Field Day, but would like more information on what was presented, click the Field Day program icon to view or download a copy of the entire 2011 Turfgrass Field Day Program.  We have our fingers crossed that the weather is about to “break” in NW AR and that cooler/wetter weather is coming.  Hopefully, we will all get some relief from this unprecedented heat wave soon.  Hang in there everyone!

Field Day Survey
If you did not fill out a survey on-site the other day, we would like to ask you to give us some feedback. An electronic survey is located at and only has 6 questions, so it will take less than a minute to complete:  We really try to improve our field day each year, so we value your input in this process.
