The University of Arizona Karsten Turfgrass Reseach Facility was established in 1991 at that time by the College of Agriculture with major funding provided by Karsten Manufacturing (PingŪ). The research facility is part of the university's campus agricultural center at 2101 E. Roger Road, east of Campbell Avenue. The 7.5 acres of turfgrass research plots features five United States Golf Association specification putting greens, two-4-meter deep lysimeters, and a weather station based computer controlled irrigation system. The primary irrigation source is tertiary effluent from the city of Tucson.
