Regional Roadside Testing Project

This multi-state research project aims to provide participating departments of transportation (DOTs) with unbiased, up-to-date information about the performance of turfgrass cultivars when used on roadsides in the northern United States.  This project has four objectives:

  1. Institute a multi-state roadside turfgrass testing program.
  2. Develop a data collection and reporting system that provides the most recent research results to state DOTs in a timely manner.
  3. Increase collaboration between University research programs that work on roadside turf.
  4. Demonstrate the usefulness of regional roadside turfgrass research in order to increase collaboration between departments of transportation in future years.
