Dan Strey and myself spent last week in Beijing China for the 12th International Turfgrass Research conference. It was an excellent meeting, with more than 300 people in attendance. As you can see, we had a beautiful, clear day at the Great Wall.
It was a little hazy for the Forbidden City.
Iowa State was well represented with 6 papers that are listed below. Full text of these will be up on the Turfgrass Information Service soon. I can also send full text to anyone who would like them.
