EMPIRE™ Turf Research

Data used in research

The following data has been collected from turf growers Australia wide. Each grower was interviewed to see the average amount of mowing for the three different turf varieties that were of interest. As expected there are fluctuations in the data which represent different climatic conditions. The data does show significant differences in the average mowing times for the different turfs.

These preliminary results are currently being tested further and when these results are available, will be added to the EMPIRE™ Turf website.
