A Contrarians Guide to Turfgrass Robotic Technology

J. Scott McElroy, Ph.D.
Start Date
60 Minutes

If you’ve worked with many turf researchers and scientists, you know that facts and events that can be replicated are critical to what they do. That’s partly why J. Scott McElroy, Ph.D., says he hesitates to make predictions such as those a fortune teller might reveal. Yet in this 60-minute webinar, McElroy discusses why it is highly probable that in the next 10 years autonomous technology will gain a significant portion of the professional and consumer market in the U.S. “To the robotic contrarian, any positive arguments presented regarding this technology will likely fall on deaf ears. To the contrarian, only seeing is believing.” he says. McElroy walks us through the science behind where this technology is in 2023 and gives you ideas you can use in the future.
