AGCSATech Research

AGCSATech is a self-funding division of the AGCSA that enables the association to embark on research programmes directed at providing independent data and solutions to some of the most important problems confronting superintendents. With funding assistance from the former Horticulture Australia Limited (HAL), AGCSATech has been able to undertake a variety of significant projects for the benefit of the industry over the past 15 years. Among these projects have included

  • Golf course biodiversity and carbon sequestration (in conjunction with the University of Melbourne)
  • Golf course benchmarking
  • Bentgrass variety trials
  • Evaluation of selected bentgrass ecotypes for sailinity tolerance and sod production
  • Environmental and health benefits of golf courses (literature review)
  • Effluent water use on turf
  • Survey of Australian golf courses using reclaimed wastewater
  • Collection and evaluation of bentgrass and couchgrass ecotypes in old putting greens
  • Management guidelines for new warm-season grasses in Australia (in conjunction with QDPIF)
  • ANTEP Ryegrass and Tall Fescue Trials (in conjunction with the Australian Seed Federation)
