I had the pleasure of a chat with 3 very smart people today. This episode introduced a graduate student of Dr Jim Brosnans, Devon Carroll who is working on a her PHD. We firstly speak about her research about women in turf and the findings she has found on why and why not women work in the turf industry. We then dive into her latest research on poa overseen by Jim Brosnan on poa lifecycle. UT is at the forefront of poa research in turf. John Neylan joined me again and contributed nicely to the discussion as poa is his speciality and I appreciate him taking his time to be a part of it.
