Abstract/Contents:Provides an overview of The National Turfgrass Research Initiative, funded through The United States Department of Agriculture, Agriculture Research Service (USDA-ARS) and conducted through a coalition including the USDA, the university research community, and the turfgrass industry. Lists several reasons why the United States Federal Government should fund turfgrass research. Discusses other topics such as a strategy for carrying out the Research Industry-Academic-Government partnership, communication, and priority research areas. States that "the first funding phase for the Initiative (US$5.4 million) has been requested by the turfgrass industry. This funding has been requested of the U.S. Congress to establish twelve research positions at nine ARS locations. Each position will include US$300,000 for the research position and an additional $150,000 for cooperative research projects with universities."
