Certified Turfgrass

Vegetatively propagated turfgrass varieties that are approved and certified by state crop improvement associations who are members of the Association of Official Seed Certifying Agencies (AOSCA) qualify for the ITGAP program. These varieties have been developed with genetic purity that performs to specific climate conditions.

When you combine pure vegetative material with ITGAP protocols you get turfgrass that is virtually free of contamination and perform with the characteristics you want…whether that be density, salt tolerance, temperature tolerance, disease resistance, or uniformity.

Currently under the ITGAP nine (9) turfgrass varieties are included and being produced by international growers. They include both University of Georgia varieties and privately released varieties of warm-season grasses. For more information on certification, we invite you to read Turfgrass: Value of Genetic Purity by Dr. J. Earl Elsner.
