Economic, environmental, social and health impacts and benefits of the turfgrass and lawncare industries in Australia (TU17006)
What’s it all about?
This investment will help form a picture of the direct and indirect benefits that flow from the production from turf, including from economic, environmental and human health and wellbeing perspectives. The idea is to bring research together and consolidate the findings to give turf businesses and the industry as a whole a better understanding of the wider benefits of the products they produce. The information will then be available to help inform key messaging around the positive impacts and opportunities around turf, for industry to use in conversations with the community. There is also the opportunity for this information to be used in future levy-funded marketing programs for the industry.
This project is a strategic levy investment in the Hort Innovation Turf Fund
