Ohio designates a turfgrass week

The state of Ohio has officially designated an “Ohio Turfgrass Week,” in order to increase awareness of the turfgrass industry and the importance of turfgrass to the state’s economy and environment.

The Ohio Revised Code 5.2239 says, “The General Assembly finds that the turfgrass industry in this state employs thousands of people and generates billions of dollars in revenue each year. The General Assembly also finds that turfgrass acts as an environmental filter absorbing pollutants such as carbon dioxide and sulfur dioxide and prevents soil erosion.

The idea was initiated in early 2005 and a bill was signed on Dec. 23, 2010 by now former Gov. Ted Strickland just before he left office.

During the last week in May, the Ohio Turfgrass Foundation and other industry groups will promote the benefits of turfgrass, as well as the industry.
