The bachelor of technology in turfgrass management: sports turf management focuses on the cultivation and management of specialty grasses for sports fields and recreation areas.
According to Zhongchun “ZJ” Jiang, Ph.D., SUNY Cobleskill professor of turfgrass management, the fields, once closely related, have diverged into distinct fields with different cultural practices and emphases, and now have separate professional organizations. SUNY Cobleskill has always offered turfgrass management courses, but the field was previously treated as a concentration under Plant Science.
Enrollment for the bachelors of technology in turfgrass management at SUNY Cobleskill will begin with the spring 2008 semester.
