Turfgrass Science

The turfgrass program at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln is made up of experts in the areas of turfgrass breeding, weed science, plant physiology, entomology, and soil and water management. Our mission is to provide turfgrass research and education and to maintain high quality turfgrass while reducing water and other inputs. The goal is to provide pertinent research based information to turfgrass managers throughout the year and address agronomic issues as they come up across Nebraska, the Great Plains region, and the country.
