Turfgrass Field Day Series

By Dr. Dale Bremer and Wes Dyer

Turfgrass Field Day would have been on August 6th, 2020, had we been able to have an in-person event this summer. For that reason, we have been offering a few short video summaries of research projects being conducted by K-State faculty and researchers. Videos don’t exceed 5 minuets, and this video in the series is by Wes Dyer, current Ph.D. student in Turfgrass. Wes discusses Water Conservation Approaches in Turfgrass Systems Using an Irrigation Decision Tree. His research team includes: Wes Dyer, Dale Bremer, Andres Patrignani, Cathie Lavis, Jack Fry and Josh Friell

The researchers were studying how NDVI ratings correlate to visual ratings of turfgrass quality. It’s not as simple as you might think! The article at the link above does a nice job summarizing their academic article.
