Turf grass the topic on this week's Prairie Yard & Garden

Geneva Golf Course, Alexandria, Minn.

Morris, Minn. -- The 25th season of Prairie Yard and Garden (PY&G) airs Thursday evenings at 7:30 p.m. on Pioneer Public Television.

Larry Zilliox, former University of Minnesota Extension educator from Alexandria, Minnesota, hosts the popular program--one of Minnesota's top resources for gardening information.

On April 5, PY&G discusses growing turf grass with owner of the Geneva Golf Club in Alexandria, Gary Thompson. He will explain the process used to create a golf course among the fields, wetlands and pastures in west central Minnesota and how his staff maintains its turf grass for an entire golf season.

Each season, PY&G travels the state to confer with researchers, gardening and nursery professionals, educators, and ordinary backyard gardeners about their expertise in horticulture, landscaping, and a variety of gardening topics in a sometimes difficult and frustrating growing region. The series is produced on campus by Roger Boleman, director of Instructional and Media Technologies with Michael Cihak, assistant director of marketing communication and design, who is the production coordinator, editor, and videographer.
