The Golf Course Superintendents Association of America (GCSAA) recently announced it will support four new university research projects in 2023.

The GCSAA Foundation research endowments and its Chapter Cooperative Grant Program will fund the projects, including one Dr. Michael Hurdzan Endowment and Mark Kizziar Research Endowment project, and one Robert A. Moore Endowment project.

The projects will receive a total of $170,064 from a GCSAA Foundation block grant with an additional $117,500 in matching funds from participating GCSAA chapters and the Oregon Turfgrass Foundation.

The four research projects include:

  • Comparing wetting agent application strategies for efficacy and longevity in sand-based putting greens by Wendell Hutchens, Ph.D., at the University of Arkansas.
  • Suppressing dollar spot through adjustment of leaf surface pH by Paul Koch, Ph.D., at the University of Wisconsin.
  • Effects of moisture management on annual bluegrass weevil movement, oviposition, larval survival and turfgrass damage by Ben McGraw, Ph.D., at Penn State University.
  • Influence of nitrogen rate on growing degree-day models for plant growth regulator reapplication interval on annual bluegrass putting greens by Alec Kowalewski, Ph.D., from Oregon State University.
