About Us

The Wisconsin Turfgrass Association represents all turf management professionals throughout Wisconsin who have a keen interest in the important role turfgrass plays in the quality of our lives.

The mission of the Wisconsin Turfgrass Association is to support turfgrass research and education at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. This includes funding of programs in turfgrass management and allied disciplines that enhance the understanding and general knowledge of the art and science of maintaining turfgrass.

Specifically, the association is a nonprofit corporation dedicated to the promotion of environmentally-responsible turfgrass management through research at the OJ Noer Turfgrass Research and Education Facility and other sites throughout Wisconsin. We also offer additional educational programs such as the Turfgrass Field Day and Turfgrass Research Day.
