Abstract/Contents:"Since 1983, the United States Golf Association has funded more than 400 university research projects at 39 universities at cost of over $34 million. The Turfgrass and Environmental Research Program provides direction to these institutions and employs science as the foundation to benefit golf in the areas of turfgrass and resource management, sustainable development, and environmental protection. At the end of each year, the USGA provides a summary of the research conducted under this important national program and this report summarizes the results from 2009. There are two primary goals of the research program. The first is to develop turfgrasses and cultural systems with better stress tolerance and reduced water requirements and pesticide use. To address the USGA's first research goal, 33 research projects were funded in integrated turfgrass management, physiology, breeding, genetics, and course construction practices. The second goal is to investigate environmental issues and sustainable resource management for golf courses. Four research projects that investigate the environmental impact of golf courses are reported. The research program actively coordinates and supports research, associated educational programs, and other partnerships to benefit golf, the environment, and people. For example, the USGA, GCSAA, and National Turfgrass Evaluation Program (NTEP) together have developed turfgrass variety testing programs conducted on golf courses throughout the United States. In addition, the USGA works with state research foundations and superintendent chapters to fund applied research through the Grantin- Aid Research Program. Thirteen research projects are included in this report under the Grant-in-Aid Research Program. USGAs Turfgrass and Environmental Research Program also provides funding to the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation to support the Wildlife Links Research Program. Eight projects are currently being funded and summaries of their progress are included in this report."
