Annual Bluegrass Research Sites Needed

[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”3601″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″ css=”.vc_custom_1559918452586{padding-left: 20px !important;}”][vc_column_text]The Penn State Turfgrass Program is looking for assistance with a research project focusing on annual bluegrass herbicide resistance throughout Pennsylvania.

John Kaminski (Professor of Turfgrass Science) and Kaiyuan Tang (Ph.D. student) are looking for turfgrass sites in Pennsylvania to collect annual bluegrass plants, and they are currently interested in collecting samples from sod farms, athletic fields, home lawns managed by professional lawn care services, and golf course fairways where herbicide resistance is suspected or in sites routinely treated with herbicides. Collected plants will be screened for resistance to several herbicides and plant growth regulators typically applied to manage annual bluegrass.

The USDA-SCRI Annual Bluegrass Collective is part of a larger initiative involving faculty, staff and graduate students from fourteen Universities across the United States. If you would like to participate in this research project, please complete the brief survey (www.bit.ly/ResistPoa) and/or contact John Kaminski at kaminski@psu.edu.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row king_padding_top=”50″][vc_column][vc_btn title=”Read More” style=”custom” custom_background=”#73bf43″ custom_text=”#ffffff” link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Fpsuturf.com%2F2019%2F06%2Fannual-bluegrass-research-at-penn-state-survey-sites-needed%2F||target:%20_blank”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
