The Turfgrass Water Management Program at Univ. of Georgia
The University of Georgia has been a leading source of scientific information on turfgrass management since 1946 when the first research was started. This program has been responsible for the development of 11 turfgrass cultivars, the first in the Southeastern United States to research turfgrass water-use efficiency, and the first in the country to begin research at the watershed level on turfgrass pesticide and nutrient loading from residential neighborhoods. The transfer of information to the consumer is done through the Cooperative Extension Service by traditional and web-based educational methods.
