ATC Office Hours

Tom Cook led the turfgrass program at Oregon State University for 31 years and was my professor for many turfgrass classes when I was a student there in the 1990s. Tom studies what grows in lawns, and how the starting conditions, and the management practices, influence what the lawn turns out to be sometime in the future. We discuss this, and golf course turf, in this episode.

What is ATC Office Hours?

I discuss technical turfgrass topics with turfgrass managers, scientists, greenkeepers, and whoever drops by the ATC office hours. There's a lot of talk about the work done to create playing surfaces for golf, and also about growing grass for sporting surfaces of all sort, and also some talk of lawns.
