Paul Johnson been studying turfgrasses his entire career, starting as an assistant golf course superintendent, and then in research at the University of Minnesota where he earned his PhD, at the University of Nebraska, and for the last 18 yrs. at Utah State University. His research and teaching with these little plants has been focused on understanding their biology and ecology. That knowledge has been applied to plant breeding efforts in bluegrasses, buffalograss, wheatgrass plus collection and evaluation of numerous turfgrass species for adaptation in the Intermountain West. Paul also applies that knowledge to improve management practices of turfgrasses for best plant and soil health, lowest inputs, and greatest benefits to the users. He is currently Professor and Department Head of the Department of Plants, Soils and Climate and a member of the Center for Water Efficient Landscaping.
