Title: Natural Grass Sod Promotion, Research, and Information Order (AMS-LP-21-0028) 

This proposed rule invites comments on the establishment of an industry-funded promotion, research, and information program for natural grass sod products.  The proposed Natural Grass Sod Promotion, Research, and Information Order was submitted to the U.S. Department of Agriculture by Turfgrass Producers International, a group of natural grass sod producers.  The program will conduct research, marketing, and promotion activities that will benefit the entire industry.  Primary goals of the program include educating consumers and stakeholders of the benefits of natural grass and providing producers with marketing tools they can use to grow their business.  The goals identified in this proposed rule are only attainable through a national research and promotion program for natural grass sod.
