The Year In Review - Travels of John Mascaro
September - December 2002
The below photo's are a photo journal for my website visitors to enjoy. I have been fortunate to have been able to travel from time to time and with each trip, I photograph turfgrass conditions that I encounter. I will continue this forum and add to the photo's (and of course soil profile samples) as I continue to travel from place to place.

September 2002, FTGA Show in Tampa, FL. Yankees Legends Field, Richie Andrews, Sports Turf Manager. The field was in perfect shape. They were removing some small areas of turfgrass contamination by first applying Round-Up and then digging the areas out.
