Goal is to grow turf more sustainably
September 4, 2020 By Turf & Rec
For the first time in Canada, golfers can contribute to the efforts of the Canadian Turfgrass Research Foundation to help improve the turf quality, safety and environmental sustainability of the golf courses they play as well as such other grassed recreational surfaces as sports fields, lawn bowling greens, parks and home lawns.
Golf Canada’s “A New Approach to the Turf We Play On” initiative is hoped to resonate among golfers who may not be aware of the current challenges necessary to provide high-quality course conditions in an environmentally-conscious and sustainable culture.
The industry is being challenged to become more environmentally sustainable and use fewer resources, with calls for increased water, fertilizer and other restrictions having an impact at every Canadian golf course, affecting both costs and standards of play.
“We believe it’s entirely possible to balance intensive turf care with environmental sustainability, but in order to grow better, more sustainable turf, turfgrass research in Canada needs your support,” CTRF chairman Paul Schofield said.
