Turfgrass Science Seminars at Tokyo and Osaka

On 14 and 15 December I gave seminars at Tokyo and Osaka, respectively, to audiences of greenkeepers who came for a full-day seminar about turfgrass science. It wasn't just greenkeepers from those cities, in attendance, however; some greenkeepers traveled all the way from Niigata, Mie, and Yamaguchi to spend a day learning about new developments in turfgrass science that can be applied in their day-to-day work.

Woods_ueno The translator for these seminars was Mr. Yukio Ueno who also translates the monthly article I write for ゴルフ場セミナー magazine. The cost of putting on these seminars is offset by generous support from Syngenta, Toro, and Simplot. The fourteen page seminar workbook for the December seminars can be downloaded here.

Additional seminars in this series will be held at Tokyo on 19 January and 22 February, and in Osaka on 20 January and 24 February. Register for those seminars by clicking here.

It would have been really nice if the seminar work book was in English too!

I do have the "unauthorized" English version of the seminar workbook! So if anyone wants to see that, please let me know and I will send it to you.
