The Lawn Institute Invites Researchers to Submit Proposals

The Lawn Institute Research Committee invites you to submit a request for research funding.

Grant funding is available for studies that impact turfgrass farmers, distributors, and consumers.  Of particular interest is research in the following areas:

  • Cultural Impact of Turfgrass
  • Extending Harvested Turf “Shelf Life”
  • Environmental Awareness
  • Production Cost
  • Compilations and Summaries of Existing Research on:
    • Nutrients and Pesticides
    • The Role of Turfgrass in Protecting the Environment
    • Benefits of Turfgrass

When writing your proposal, remember that the selection committee is made up of industry representatives from around the world as well as research scientists. It is important that you clearly define the problem that your research addresses, the scope of the problem, and how your research addresses it as well as how your research will impact turfgrass producers. The Lawn Institute reserves the right to negotiate proprietary rights for projects on a per-grant basis including copyrights, source codes, and/or patents.
