Univ of Arizona Synthetic Turf Field Day: Oct 30 in Tucson, AZ

The University of Arizona Turfgrass Research, Extension, and Education program will conduct a Synthetic Turf Field Day on Thursday, October 30 in Tucson.

The link to the announcement is from our website at: 

Please share this announcement with your colleagues, appropriate administrative, facilities, and coaching staff members that will find this field day to be a valuable and meaningful learning experience.  So many schools have converted to synthetic turf from natural grass or more may be considering installation of synthetic turf athletic fields.  The field day will provide an opportunity to learn about product choices and the maintenance that is required for safe and long-term use.

The featured speakers will be Dr. Charlie Mancino from Ohio who conducts synthetic turf testing services and Mr. Matt Anderson who maintains the Arizona Stadium.
There will be an opportunity to inspect 2 types of turfs, an irrigation system, sweeper, groomers, blower, thermometer, water infiltrometer, surface hardness measuring instruments.

If there are any questions, please feel free to contact me 
We look forward to seeing you there.
