OTRF Funded Research
The Ontario Turfgrass Research Foundation (OTRF) proudly supports the scientific research of turf culture for the advancement of the turfgrass industry. Through proceeds from fundraising initiatives, charitable donations, and annual industry contributions, the OTRF financially supports turfgrass-based research.
Annually, the foundation launches a call for proposals to Canadian researchers. An OTRF research committee reviews these grant applications to ensure that turfgrass funding is utilized in the best interest of the industry.
Research Priorities & RFPs
Research grants are awarded based on identified research needs for the turf sector, as defined by stakeholders in the turfgrass industry. These research priorities are reviewed and updated regularly as the needs of green space management are mandated.
