The purpose of the turfgrass survey is to create a
profile of Tennessee’s turfgrass industry and measure its economic importance
to the state. This information will be
helpful in understanding the diversity and types of turfgrass producers and
users, the economic impact to the state, and challenges faced. To calculate the economic impact of
Tennessee’s turfgrass industry, data from the survey are needed to estimate the
industry’s revenues, expenses and employment.
For this research study, turfgrass is defined as a contiguous
community of grasses, tolerant of traffic and defoliation from mowing a minimum
of two times per year, that is grown and maintained to improve the aesthetic
and functional quality of landscapes and utility areas.
