Abstract/Contents:Suggests that "every industry must band together to fund meaningful research that will improve their businesses." Explains that "the Lawn Institute funds projects that benefit the turfgrass production industry...The funding of scientific research is only one component of what The Lawn Institute does. Completed research must be transformed into something that is more palatable for the mass market." Mentions that "turfgrass is great and the fastest and best way to get a great natural turfgrass lawn is with sod...The Lawn Institute is actively seeking grants and partnerships to spread [their] message and increase [their] funding."
