The UK Turf Program in the College of Agriculture, Food and Environment supports the University’s land-grant values of improving quality of life through research, teaching and extension. These efforts serve the citizens of Kentucky and beyond. Interdisciplinary turf research is conducted on the University’s Research Farms, on private properties and public lands throughout the state. At UK’s Spindletop Research Farm in Fayette County, KY, over 27 acres of turf are maintained for research purposes. Results from these research efforts are distributed to representatives of supporting companies and to the public. The UK Plant and Soil Sciences Department offers a B.S. Degree in Turfgrass Management. Additional degrees are offered at the M.S. and Ph.D. level. Educational opportunities are available to the public through many extension programs including several annual meetings and field days.
