Variety Specific Research

Sod Solutions works with Universities and Turf Farms across the country to research the traits and characteristics of our collection of improved turf varieties. The research performed has addressed questions on water usage and needs, shade tolerance, traffic tolerance, herbicide usage for weed control, insect damage and control, erosion control and more. Use the menu to the left by clicking on the various grass titles to view the completed studies and current progress for each variety.
