USGA Summary Points:Federal funding for priority research needs identified at a Fall 2017 workshop, including genome sequencing of turfgrass species, research to document the inherent value of turfgrass and drought turfgrass cultivars is now being requested. As a result of the workshop, USDA-ARS has not only allocated new funding for genome sequencing of turfgrass species, but also has developed a consortium of turfgrass researchers to initiate new studies. To determine the acreage, uses and economic value of the turfgrass industry in the U.S., NTF has collaborated with a group of universities and non-profit organizations to apply for a $1,000,000 USDA grant. The Foundation for Food and Agriculture Research (FFAR) has agreed to consider providing matching funds for priority turfgrass research projects identified in 2020.
