There was a planning visit this week at the Siam CC Waterside course to start setting out the test plots and planning the educational sessions for the 10 March 2015 Asian Turfgrass Field Day.
At the field day, we will be discussing many interesting things, trying to make it as exciting and as interactive as possible. With the invited speakers and special guests for the field day, we are planning to show:
- soil profiles, soil organic matter accumulation, and sand topdressing amounts to optimize soil and surface conditions
- divot size and recovery
- weed abundance in different species and weed development with and without control measures
- resistance of weeds to common herbicides
- growth rates of different grasses
- centipede grass introduction and demonstration
- individual nutrient effect on warm-season grasses
- and much more
After the morning field day, we will have a buffet lunch of delicious Thai food at the Siam CC Waterside clubhouse, before continuing to Laem Chabang International CC for the AGIF Turfgrass Management Exposition.
