Jacklin Seed by Simplot has added Katie Dobson to their team as the senior turfgrass scientist in the research department at the Post Falls, Idaho, office. Dobson will be conducting research trials that help demonstrate the benefits of Jacklin turf seed varieties.

Dobson most recently worked for the University of Guelph where she served as a research assistant while pursuing her doctorate degree in turfgrass ecology and management. Her thesis dealt with interseeding cool-season grasses and the accumulated seed bank stored in sports turf soil.
