CITRA, Fla. (WCJB) - A UF/IFAS extension in Citra hosted their annual turfgrass field day, in which many businesses, local farmers, sports arena managers, and golf course superintendents learned about the research being done on different types of grasses.

The field day was taught by different researchers at UF and included how grasses perform in high traffic environments and how grasses perform in the hot Florida Climate.

The research being done is funded by a wide variety of parties, including the United States Golf Association, who is funding research to look out how different varieties of bermuda grass can handle large quantities of foot traffic.
