A team of technical service specialists serving the turf and ornamentals (T&O) market, the Green Solutions Team provides customers with scientific expertise to address their business goals and challenges, while also providing scientific thought leadership, education and training to benefit the turfgrass industry.

With more than 25 years of experience in the turfgrass industry, Reicher also currently serves as the Cyril Bish Professor of Horticulture in the department of agronomy and horticulture at the University of Nebraska—Lincoln. He has been featured in more than 500 issues of newsletters and trade magazines and has been revised or rewritten in 40 publications.
