William H. Daniel Turfgrass Research and Diagnostic Center

About the Center

The Daniel Center was established in 1996 and is conveniently located just north of campus and adjacent to one of two 18-hole Pete Dye designed championship golf courses. In 1999, an educational facility was added providing classroom space for teaching upper-level turfgrass courses and a space for offering a variety of educational workshops for the advancement of the turfgrass industry. The Center consists of 21 acres and houses over 75 turfgrass research projects in any given year. Innovative research studies encompass disease biology and control, turfgrass physiology, insect biology and management to species and cultivar studies and turf nutrition and management studies. Support for the center comes annually from the Purdue University College of Agriculture, Department of Horticulture and Landscape Architecture, grants, and generous gifts from the Midwest Regional Turf Foundation.
