USGA Summary Points:With the help of NTF and new Congressional funding, four new, permanent turfgrass scientists were hired by the USDA-ARS in 2020 and 2021, working on turfgrass genomics, water conservation and ecosystem service maximization. A National Turfgrass Survey grant proposal was developed and submitted to the USDA-AMS for funding consideration. Turfgrass Stakeholder Summit II was held in fall 2020 and resulted in potential funding opportunities between the turfgrass industry and the Foundation for Food and Agriculture Research (FFAR). Contacts were made, and a proposal developed to improve National Park Service turf sites with equipment, resources, training and research. NPS is a visible and well-respected federal agency that can champion the need for quality, functional turfgrass in high traffic areas. Plans are being made for Congressional support of turfgrass specific research and survey needs in the next Farm Bill.
