This year the Kansas Turfgrass Conference will be held in conjunction with the Kansas Nursery & Landscape Association at the Kansas Expo Centre in Topeka on December 1, 2 & 3. By partnering with KNLA, we hope to have a larger audience and trade show, as well as offering more sessions for attendees.
The conference is an excellent way to learn about turf and landscape management, visit with old friends, network with new ones, and see all the latest and greatest equipment and supplies from local and national vendors.
Sessions include Basic Turfgrass; Disease, Insect & Weed Management; Golf Turf Management; Sports Turf; Lawn Care; Basic Nursery & Landscape and Advanced Nursery & Landscape (sponsored by NurseryWorks).
On December 2, Ewing Irrigation is sponsoring the Sports Turf session which is part of an initiative to educate coaches, sports turf managers and volunteers on how to maintain the safest, most playable baseball fields possible. At this event, you will have the opportunity to network and learn tips from two former top NFL/MLB groundskeepers., Troy Smith and Luke Yoder. The focus will be on the proper construction of a pitching mound from the ground up by actually building a pitcher’s mound in the trade show area.
