USGA Summary Points:Priority research needs identified at a Fall 2017 workshop include social and environmental research to document the inherent value of turfgrass, turf cultivars that are more persistent, using less water, fertilizer, pesticides and other inputs, quantification of the acreage, various uses, and economic value of the turfgrass industry in the U.S., identification, evaluation and development of native and/or non-traditional turf species, and investigation of the turfgrass phytobiome. As a result of the workshop, USDA-ARS is committing new funding for genome sequencing of turfgrass species. Language that recognizes the importance of the National Turfgrass Research Initiative and turfgrass research priorities is included in the final draft of the 2018 Farm Bill. EPA Water Sense, an important federal program that certifies low-water use products, was Congressionally authorized in 2018, with support from the National Turfgrass Federation. Water Sense is a potential partner with the turfgrass industry in certification of water-saving turfgrasses.
