GTI: Guelph Turfgrass Institute


The Guelph Turfgrass Institute was established in 1987 to conduct research and extension and provide information on turfgrass production and management to members of the Ontario turfgrass industry. Supported by the University of Guelph, the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture and Food and the turfgrass industry, it is the first of its kind in Canada and recognized as a world-class centre for research, extension and professional development for the study of turf. Research activities continue to focus in areas such as environmental aspects of pesticide use, evaluation of grass species, varieties and seeding methods, sports field construction, fertility and management programs, pesticide use and the biological and cultural control of diseases and weeds.
