2021 Kansas Turf & Ornamental Field Day - August 5

Submitted by Christy Dipman

K-State's Turf and Ornamental Field Day is happening! It will be held at the Rocky Ford Turfgrass Research Center, 1700 Barnes Road in Manhattan, on Thursday, August 5. Due to the pandemic (which is receding for now!), we will have a change of structure for our tour of research plots and conversations with faculty and graduate students. Please note that the format and guidelines are subject to further change or cancellation, based on KSU and state/local health policies.

For a copy of the program, go to http://www.kansasturfgrassfoundation.com/.

∙ Online advanced registration is strongly recommended.

∙ Parking at Faith E Free Church - 1921 Barnes Road, Manhattan, KS.

∙ There will be no formal welcoming session this year. Tours will leave from the registration area about every 15 minutes beginning at 8:30 a.m. and running until 10 a.m. You can arrive anytime between about 8:15 a.m. (or earlier) and 9:45 a.m. to join one of the tours.

∙ Eight stops with different presenters, each running about 15 minutes.

∙ No donuts or coffee will be provided, but a boxed lunch will be available when your plot tour finishes. Take your boxed lunch and find your own space to eat - there will be some chairs spaced out in shaded areas. Or, feel free to take it "to go."

∙ Vendors will be present from 8 a.m. until about 1 p.m.
