Welcome to VT Turfgrass.  Our goal is to deliver timely, science-based, practical information applicable to the turfgrass industry and public at-large within our program areas. Virginia’s turfgrass industry is big business within the Commonwealth, having a multi-billion dollar annual economic impact on the state economy.  Managed turfgrasses are most often noted for their aesthetics in our lawns and/or recreational value as golfing or sporting venues, but one of the most significant attributes of a healthy turf is its 'functional' value in soil stablization, environmental cooling, carbon sequestration, groundwater filtration, and much much more. By applying the latest in Virginia Tech’s science-based research in all aspects of turfgrass management, industry professionals and homeowners alike can produce healthy, great looking/playing, environmentally friendly turfgrass systems
