20+ Research Reports Posted to CTRF Website
In late June, the Canadian Turfgrass Research Foundation (CTRF) announced its website, www.turfresearchcanada.ca, underwent major content updates with over 20 research reports added. Although previously reported, we thought it fitting to include this piece in our annual 'Turf Research' edition of the Turf Line News.
“Updating the site was a time consuming but important task to ensure research results are being disseminated to the turf management industry,” stated Executive Secretary Jerry Rousseau, adding, “we’re still working on edits but did not want to delay any longer in sharing both new and previously unposted research reports from CTRF funded projects. Most of the remaining updates are aesthetic.”
