Studies in turfgrass management on the rise

Turfgrass management as a major field of study is expanding in Louisiana as well as at other universities around the country, according to The Reveille, a student newspaper at Louisiana State University.

From working at golf courses to sod farms, from maintaining NFL stadiums to suburban lawns, there are a lot of opportunities for students who are interested in turfgrass management.

When completing these programs, students have the option of becoming golf course superintendents, sports turf managers and commercial lawn care operators. They could even choose to go into technical sales with chemical and fertilizer companies.

Turf management as a field of study is not a new idea. It's been around in the Southeast since the 1940s at schools like Georgia, Mississippi State, Florida, Texas A&M and North Carolina State.

The University of Massachusetts first initiated the field in the United States in 1927, according to The Reveille.
