About Us

Aggieturf.tamu.edu has been designed to provide information on Texas turfgrasses and the role they play in the lives of millions of Texans. Turfgrasses often serve as the backbone for residential and commercial landscapes, athletic fields, recreational areas, and golf courses while also playing a vital role in the Texas Green Industry that includes:

  • 1.6 million acres of lawns and landscapes
  • $9.3 billion and 111,000 jobs in the green industry
  • $6.2 billion and 80,000 jobs in golf
  • $263 million and 2,100 jobs in turfgrass production

AggieTurf is designed to be a comprehensive site for Texas turfgrasses, selection & management considerations, pest control (weeds, insects, & diseases), links to Texas A&M Agrilife Extension content, and other useful information.
