Extension Mission

041311SentryWorldGCStevensPoint90pctBlightControlPlots 019The overall goal of the Koch Lab’s Extension Program is twofold:

  1. To disseminate science-based solutions to current problems facing the turfgrass industry out to general public and to turfgrass managers in Wisconsin and elsewhere in an innovative and efficient manner.
  2. To funnel current and anticipated future problems facing the turfgrass industry into the research program so that research can be developed to address those problems.

Future extension initiatives will include reduced-input or reduced-risk turfgrass management, and will rely heavily on collaborative input and discussion among people within and outside of the turfgrass industry to make them successful.
