Abstract/Contents:"Roadside turfgrass establishments often fail, leading to losses of resources and time for departments of transportation and other organizations. Additionally, the ecosystem services of healthy turfgrass, such as erosion control and dust reduction, are lost until the roadside turf can be re-established. One of the limitations to proper installation is a lack of training given to installers. To address the problem of poor roadside turfgrass establishment in Minnesota and surrounding regions, we worked with the Minnesota Department of Transportation to create an online training course for contractors and other stakeholders called Installation and Management of Roadside Turfgrasses. We designed the course to cover important topics such as the critical functions of roadside vegetation, how to prepare a site, a comparison of sodding and seeding, and how to maintain roadside turfgrasses via proper mowing, watering, fertilizing and weed control. The course has been live and open to students since November 2018. As part of this course, we are tracking results from pre- and post-course tests to evaluate improvement in student knowledge. Students also have the opportunity to provide feedback in an end-of-course evaluation, which we will use to improve the quality of the learning materials in the course."
