Ramkhamhaeng University Students Visit ATC Research Area


Golf Management students from Ramkhamhaeng University (มหาวิทยาลัยรามคำแหง) visited the Asian Turfgrass Center research area on 10 May to see the different grasses we are evaluating and to see how these grasses perform in the Bangkok area.


When the construction of the research area began in 2006, we had only three types of grass: Tifway 419 bermudagrass, Salam seashore paspalum, and Zoysia matrella, which ATC's research director Dr. Micah Woods is shown planting here. Now we have well over fifty varieties of grass, variously maintained as putting green, fairway, or rough, on a range of different soil types.


When the Golf Management students visited, they were able to see how different grasses perform and were able to learn about the advantages and disadvantages of each grass. There is no other place in Thailand where one can see so many types of grasses, and for students in the golf or sports turf industry this is an excellent opportunity to learn.
