The short course is designed as an introductory turfgrass management short crash course for the benefit of those that have not had a formal turfgrass management course at a college or university. It is focused on providing value for those in lawn, grounds, landscape and sports turf care. Management of putting green turf is not covered in this course. The course prepares attendees for gaining value from regular conferences, workshops and field days offered by Oklahoma State University, the University of Arkansas, other land grant universities and private industry.

Day 1 (Jan 10) will cover turfgrass id, turfgrass selection, mowing, fertilization, cultivation and irrigation while Day 2 (Jan 11) covers insect, weed and disease management. Day 2 has been submitted for Oklahoma Pesticide Applicator CEU review for a possible 6 CEUs in categories 3a (outdoor ornamentals  & turf) as well as category 10 (demonstration & research). The decision on ceu awarding is pending.

Registration includes attendance on both days, the resource manual of copies of all presentations given by the speakers, opportunity to interact with the speakers in question and answer format, networking, Klein’s catering B-B-Q buffet lunch on both days, and break refreshments. We do not offer an option of registering for just one day. Upon completion of both days the participant earns a certificate of attendance for wall display. Completion of the short course does not carry credit towards any course work at Oklahoma State University or the University of Arkansas.

Due to the presence of the Arkansas Turf Conference being later in the week of the Short Course the Arkansas Turf faculty will not be able to join us for the event but resources presented and utilized at the short course are a joint effort of both the Univ of Arkansas Turf Team and the Oklahoma State University Turf Team. Speakers at this year’s turfgrass short course include Research Assistants Mr. Dustin Harris and Jimi Underwood as well as Drs. Justin Moss, Nathan Walker, Eric Rebek, Charles Fontanier and Dennis Martin.
