FLORIDA SOD GROWERS COOPERATIVE, INC. CONTRIBUTES $35,000 FOR TURFGRASS RESEARCH

 TAMPA, Fla., Oct. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- The Florida Sod Growers Cooperative, Inc. (FSGC) donated a 1993 contribution of $35,000 to the Florida Turfgrass Association Research Foundation during the Florida Turfgrass Association's (FTGA) 41st Annual Conference and Show that was held at the Tampa Convention Center, Sept. 26-29.
 The $35,000 check was presented to FTGA Executive Director, Bob Yount by Bethel Farms Manager and FSGC President, Will Nugent during the FTGA trade show annual awards luncheon. The money will go directly towards the completion of the FTGA's turfgrass survey which completion bill totals $76,000.
 Dr. John Haydu and colleagues at the University of Florida are conducting this comprehensive statewide survey. The survey will determine the total economic impact the turfgrass industry has in the state of Florida which is beneficial to all involved in the industry for fair representation in Tallahassee. The outcome of the survey will show our legislature the importance of our industry to the state's economy.
 The FSGC formed to promote and distribute FX-10 grass. Their mission is to increase awareness of the important role grass plays in Florida's environment while educating the public on the proper way to purchase and maintain a beautiful lawn with minimal to no maintenance.
