The Nebraska Turfgrass Association is chartered under the laws of the State of Nebraska as a non-profit corporation. The NTA seeks to provide better turf for all aspects of the industry including athletic fields, cemeteries, golf courses, lawns, parks, roadsides, institutional grounds, sod production, and other turfgrass areas.
Funds generated by the NTA are used primarily for the operations of the John Seaton Anderson Turfgrass Research Center in Mead, NE. Over 30 research projects are ongoing at the center on a wide variety of research topics. Furthermore, funds are used to provide on-going education to the professional turfgrass manager in the newsletter, at the Nebraska Turf Conference, and at http://turf.unl.edu/.
