I dont know of anyone caught this but the Redskins open will be installing new grass sodded with an award-winning turf of bermudagrass created by researchers at Oklahoma State University. They will install OSU’s Latitude 36 at FedEx Field in June.


Quote:
“The NFL is the ultimate for any football player so we are delighted that a bermudagrass created by OSU experts has reached this pinnacle of success,” said OSU President Burns Hargis. “The NFL also is the ultimate test of a turf’s durability and we’re confident the Washington Redskins will be pleased with the performance of Latitude 36.” FedEx Field becomes the first NFL field to showcase Latitude 36.


Good stuff! I can't wait! Cool

If Lakelands (which is a neighborhood in Gaithersburg, MD) where I live, can spend a $ million to put in synthetic grass, the redskins should also. Imo
