The Texas A&M Turfgrass Ecology & Management Short Course is a four-day course designed for turf professionals and enthusiasts looking to expand their knowledge of turfgrass systems and best management practices. This course moves linearly from site preparation and appropriate species selection to establishment, cultural practices, and pest management. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn from a wide range of experts with unique problem-solving perspectives. The objective of this course is to empower turfgrass managers to make confident, well-informed decisions through a combination of applied and theoretical knowledge. Participants will spend time both in the classroom and engaged in group and hands-on activities.
