Turfgrass Conference Scheduled

RISE (Responsible Industry for a Sound Environment) recently announced the 2005 Turf Grass Conference slated for August 29 and 30 at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Crystal City, Va.

“This conference will offer top turf grass researchers the opportunity to share their most recent studies with the turf grass industry and regulatory officials,” Jim Skillen, manager of Formulator Issues for RISE said. “We are looking forward to learning more about the positive benefits of healthy turf and the environmental impacts of turf maintenance.”

The research presented will be a culmination of several years of studies by leading turf scientists at major universities. Presenters have been conducting studies on the amount of nutrient run-off from healthy turf versus other type landscape and lawns as well as the environmental fate of pesticide products on turf grass.

More details about the Turf Grass Conference will be provided this spring. Watch this space and www.pestfacts.org for more details as the conference date draws near.
