We're the grassroots of research
With roughly 418 million blades of grass per person on earth, there’s a lot we don’t know about grass. But through extensive research, the Virginia Turfgrass Foundation is learning and finding new ways to promote and protect these vital plants. We’ve funded the creation of turfgrass varieties that are specifically designed to help athletic performance, reduce injury potential, withstand climate fluctuations, and contribute to the earth’s water cycle.
