Turfgrass Research at WSU

The Washington State University turfgrass research program focuses on the cultural management of turfgrass species and cultivars for use in the Pacific Northwest. Applied research serves not only the turfgrass and grass seed industries but also homeowners and the general public. Basic research on turfgrass and seed production is focused on environmental stewardship and sustainable crop production. Research is conducted in laboratories and greenhouses on campus, at WSU research stations across Washington, and on golf courses, athletic fields, home lawns, and grower fields in Washington, Idaho, and Montana.
