MTF President’s message- 5-11-2018
I want to take the opportunity every few months to let you know what the MTF is working on and doing for the Turfgrass Community in Michigan. We have a very active and dedicated board with several thoughtful concepts and many undertakings. Numerous have already been accomplished and others are in the process of being implemented.
Here are a few bullet points of our activity.
**A little known fact about researching funding- all the funding for turfgrass research projects at MSU is raised thru grants, donations, sponsorships. The department does not provide support funding for professors research projects.
Finally, the MTF would like to congratulate Jesse Scholl on his new position at the Hancock Turf Research Center as the Farm Manager. Jesse replaces Mark Collins who retired this year after decades of caring for the HTRC. We are very happy for Jesse and his new position. We would also like to thank Mark for all his years of caring for the Facility. The MTF looks forward to supporting Jesse for many years to come.
The Michigan Turfgrass Foundation goal is to provide our members with research information and we encourage those with comments and suggestions to please contact us.
Have a great summer!
Amy J. Fouty, CSFM President 2018
