The Center for Turfgrass Science at Rutgers University will host the 27th Annual Rutgers Turfgrass Symposium on Friday, January 12, 2018, in room 138A Foran Hall. Oral presentations will run from 9:00 am to 4:00 PM. Dr. Jeffrey Steiner, USDA - NIFA Institute of Food Production and Sustainability, will present a keynote address entitled “Resourcing the Next Generations of Turfgrass Science.” This year’s symposium will focus on current research topics in Turfgrass Microbiomes, Weed Science, Turfgrass Management and Stress Physiology, and Pest Biology and Management.
All principal investigators (and their students) who are currently receiving Turf Center funding will be expected to present a poster of their research and provide an abstract for the symposium proceedings. Others conducting turf research are also encouraged to present a poster and submit an abstract. Posters will be displayed in the Foran Hall lobby all day Friday. A 4' x 4' display board will be provided for poster presentations. Abstracts are due by December 12, 2017 and will be published as a Rutgers Turfgrass Symposium Proceedings distributed at the meeting. Past Symposium proceedings are archived at turf.rutgers.edu.
