Research Activities   

Dr. Su’s research is focused on turfgrass stress physiology (drought and temperatures stresses). Kemin works closely with Dr. Justin Moss on water use and conservation in turfgrass. Dr. Su’s research activities involve elucidating specific physiological and molecular mechanisms associated with environmental stress in turfgrass. Kemin is also interested in turfgrass germplasm evaluation and effectiveness of some pesticides and plant growth regulators on turfgrass in comparison trials.
