The National Turfgrass Federation (NTF) is a non-profit organization formed to "promote the need for turfgrass research and its associated value to society". To fulfill its mission, NTF is encouraging the federal government to fund and conduct turfgrass research, as well as explain the benefits of turfgrass to the public. This effort is very expensive, therefore we are grateful to our sponsors for their generous contributions. Without these sponsors, the National Arboretum turfgrass exhibit, Grass Roots , and the National Turfgrass Research Initiative would cease to exist.
