KINGSTON, R.I. -- August 4, 2003 -- Are you obsessed with growing and maintaining the perfect lawn? Do crabgrass and weeds make you miserable? If so, then the University of Rhode Island's 72nd annual Turfgrass Field Day is for you.

Designed primarily for turf industry professionals - landscapers, golf course superintendents, and other grounds workers - the event is also open to the public to learn about the latest products, equipment and research into lawn maintenance.
