The Center for Turfgrass Science at Rutgers University will host the 28th Annual Rutgers Turfgrass Symposium on Friday, January 11, 2019, in room 138A Foran Hall. Oral presentations will run from 9:00 am to 4:00 PM. Dr. Ambika Chandra, Department of Soil and Crop Sciences at Texas A&M University, will present a keynote address entitled “Warm-season Turfgrass Breeding at Texas A&M.” This year’s symposium will focus on current research topics in Germplasm Enhancement, Mechanisms of Pesticide Resistance, Turfgrass Management and Turf Pathology.
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 14, 2018 and will be published as a Rutgers Turfgrass Symposium Proceedings distributed at the meeting. Past Symposium proceedings are archived at turf.rutgers.edu.
Production of the Rutgers Turfgrass Symposium Proceedings is not a simple task; therefore, please submit your abstracts on time. Abstracts can range from a few paragraphs to two pages in length, using a 12-point font (Times New Roman).
