Proceedings from the 2017 Winter Field Day

We were fortunate last week the weather held for the 2nd Annual Microdochium Patch Spring Winter Day. A group of industry professionals met last Tuesday, February 28th at the Lewis Brown Farm in Corvallis to view the great research that is being conducted by the Oregon State University Turfgrass Team.

Ph.D. Candidate, Clint Mattox kicked off the afternoon with a presentation of his trials on fungicide alternatives using Phosphite, Sulfur, Iron Sulfate and Crop Oil. Next, Masters Student, Conner Olsen took us through his trial research of the effects of Greywater on Perennial Ryegrass Cultivars. Lastly, Masters Student, Micah Gould presented his trial work on low maintenance landscapes for Oregon Public Schools.

After the field day the group gathered at the House of Brews in Corvallis for dinner and continued networking. Thank you Alec, Brian, Clint, Micah and Conner for all your hard work and hosting another great field day!
