Two University of Guelph scientists are among the recipients of 2024 research grants from the Ontario Turfgrass Research Foundation.

Dr. Katerina Jordan is spearheading an investigation into the management of take-all patch in Ontario and Canada as a whole.

Dr. Eric Lyons’ project will evaluate the overseeding of sports fields with new cultivars and species.

Two researchers from Oregon State University are also to receive OTRF funding that will evaluate stress response characteristics facilitated by endophytes in commercially available perennial ryegrass, tall fescue and fine fescue cultivars, and a study into the effects of irrigation rates and frequencies on tall fescue ecosystem services.

Collectively, $73,000 have been earmarked for the research projects.
