Ministry of Agriculture and Food. Comments on UBC's Totem Research Site, noting three main areas of research, which include "i) a fine fescue breeding program...ii)an investigation of microbial ecology in sand-based bentgrass greens in response to amendments [and]...iii)a study on the response of turf to biosolids application." Concludes by mentioning a cooperative project with the Greater Vancouver Regional District to evaluate biosolids as a topdressing/fertilizer.
