PACE Turf - Turfgrass Information Center


Have you ever been interested in the turfgrass growth potential (GP) for a location where research has been conducted or where a colleague is located? If you have, then you will appreciate the new GPAvatar application. The GPAvatar app provides a rapid way to generate simple GP graphs for most US zip codes. As an example, the graphs provided with this Update illustrates the range of climates and GP in California. If you are a Twitter user, you can download the GPAvatar graph to use as your Twitter icon to let the world know your turfgrass growth potential at a glance. To stimulate lunch-time conversation, print the GP graph and post it on the lunch room referigerator to see if anyone can figure out what it represents. This might help staff appreciate turf growth conditions throughout the year and when the grass is stressed.
