A Useful Analogy: Course Maintenance and the Human Condition
Grass Variety Differences

Seminar at University of Tennessee

Ut seminar 3

After my work at the Masters Tournament, I stopped at the University of Tennessee to meet with faculty and graduate students, to give a seminar about turfgrass management in Asia, and to look at some of the turfgrass research projects now underway at the university. I have been an adjunct faculty member in the Department of Plant Sciences since last year, and this was my first chance to meet with the faculty and to visit the campus. In the photo above, from left to right, are Dr. Tom Samples, Dr. John Sorochan, Dr. James Brosnan, and Dr. Micah Woods

Ut seminar 2

In my two day visit I had a chance to present my seminar, meet many of the faculty and turfgrass graduate students (out for dinner in Knoxville, above), see the turf at Neyland Stadium, look at the many turfgrass varieties and turfgrass experiments at the beautiful East Tennessee Research & Education Center, where many of the turfgrass plots are right along the Tennessee River.

We discussed, among other things, possible collaboration between the Asian Turfgrass Center and the University of Tennessee in turfgrass research and turfgrass information transfer, and I am excited by the opportunity we have to work together on these endeavors.
