Guideline for sustainable turfgrass using low-input cultivars and low-risk management practices

Posted by

Principle Researcher

Dr. Micheal Brownbridge

Project Scope:

This project proposes to integrate the use of improved turfgrass cultivars with low-risk pesticides and other biological inputs to promote establishment and resilience. Outputs will enable informed choices around selection of new grass species for seeding/turf installation and their use with biological inputs for improved performance. Inclusion of an economic analysis on the prototype system developed will provide foundational data on the value of the approach for homeowners and lawn care professionals.
