The Texas A&M University System has helped turfgrass managers, landscapers, sod producers, and the general public solve turfgrass related problems for many years. Through a network of research, extension, and teaching programs, Texas A&M has provided solutions based on sound research, extensive outreach educational programs,and assistance through statewide and county extension activities.

Research efforts strive to integrate urban landscape systems to enhance quality of life, develop improved technologies for the management of weeds, diseases, insects, and other important pests, develop turf systems to reduce impact of environmental pollutants, and develop landscape management systems that conserve natural resources. These research priorities are addressed through strong interdisciplinary cooperation in agronomy, breeding and genetics, plant physiology, entomology, pathology, weed science, and soil science, plant nutrition, and water quality.
