Turf Research North Carolina is Off and Running

Turf Research North Carolina (TRNC), the research program involving North Carolina State University, the North Carolina Sod Producers Association and Sod Solutions is active and all growers have now contributed the first years funding to the program.  In all, 16 sod farms across North Carolina and Sod Solutions will contribute financially to the program on a yearly basis.  The supplemental research dollars will go to developing the next line of improved grasses from NC State.  Breeder Dr. Susana Milla-Lewis is looking at a number of experimental lines and varieties with release dates in the coming years.  The TRNC program will contribute over 64-thousand dollars per year for six years and will help fund the development of these grasses.  Member sod farms are listed as follows:
