K-State turf faculty take leadership roles in international conference

By Jack Fry

Dale Bremer, Jack Fry, Jared Hoyle and Steve Keeley, all in horticulture and natural resources, and Megan Kennelly, plant pathology, attended the 13th International Turfgrass Society Conference July 16-21 in New Brunswick, New Jersey.

All K-State faculty served as technical editors, associate editors, or reviewers for manuscripts and presented their own papers. Fry also chaired a Zoysiagrass Symposium which included presenters from Australia, Italy, South Korea, and the United States.

The following oral and poster presentations — and accompanying journal articles — were presented at the conference:

• Chabon, J.; D. Bremer, J. Fry, and C. Lavis, "Effects of soil moisture-based irrigation controllers, mowing height, and trinexapac-ethyl on tall fescue irrigation amounts and mowing requirements," International Turfgrass Society Research Journal. 

• Fry, J., A. Chandra, D. Genovesi, K. Morris, and M. Xiang, "Winter injury of fine-textured interspecific Zoysia hybrids in the upper transition zone of the USA," International Turfgrass Society Research Journal.

• Hoyle, J. and J. Reeves, "Effect of colorant and glyphosate application timing on annual bluegrass and tall fescue control in dormant 'Meyer' zoysiagrass," International Turfgrass Society Research Journal. 

• Obasa, K., J. Fry, D. Bremer, and M. Kennelly, "Evaluation of spring and fall fungicide applications for large patch management in zoysiagrass," International Turfgrass Society Research Journal.

• Peterson, K., D. Bremer, and J. Blonquist Jr., "Estimating transpiration from turfgrass using stomatal conductance values derived from infrared thermometry," International Turfgrass Society Research Journal.

• Raudenbush, Z. and S. Keeley, "Cultivation reduces infestation of silvery-thread moss in a creeping bentgrass putting green," International Turfgrass Society Research Journal.
