Don’t miss the 2019 Purdue Turf and Landscape Field Day on July 9th! Your opportunity to interact with Purdue Specialists, see the latest on-going research and best management practices, and network with others in the Green Industry. This is the premiere Green Industry education event that you’ll find this summer! https://www.mrtf.org/event/turf-and-landscape-field-day/?event_date=2019-07-09
In the landscape track, we have our Purdue Plant and Pest Diagnostic Lab discussing boxwood blight, our Entomologist covering insect pests, the Nursery and Landscape Specialist covering weed control timing (including current research on two herbicide products and timing of application), Consumer Horticulture Specialist demonstrating native shrubs, Urban Forestry Specialist presenting information on tree risks, the Office of the Indiana State Chemist, Fred Whitford, and much more. New this year, we will have a campus walk-about with all of the Green Industry Specialists on campus to locate and diagnose trees and shrubs with various problems. This will also give attendees the opportunity to tour Purdue’s Horticultural Park. We continue to have increased attendance and vendors each year, so don’t miss out on this amazing educational opportunity!
