Research Farms

The Research and Technical Services business unit is responsible for developing top-performing proprietary turfgrass varieties. Turf breeding objectives include color, disease and insect resistance, fine leaf texture, wear tolerance and drought resistance. Technical support is vital to enable the delivery of professional customer service to both distributors and their end-use customers. This support is backed by the interpretation and analysis of extensive regional turfgrass variety trial data.
