GCSAA Suspends Research Funding. What Do YOU Think?

By |  January 14, 2009

Did you hear the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America has suspended funding for new research projects? According to a report, “The GCSAA Board of Directors determined that the highest priorities for research in the coming year will be publication of the survey results from the Golf Course Environmental Profile, the testing and introduction of the IPM template and advancement of the Pesticide Characteristics Project. While there will be no funding of new chapter cooperative research projects in 2009, GCSAA will continue to monitor the current 22 projects that are part of the Chapter Cooperative and National Research programs. The board has emphasized its commitment to funding applied agronomic, environmental and regulatory research, and plans to resume funding of new research when the projects listed above are completed and stability returns to the economy.”

I’d love to hear your thoughts on this matter. Blog here!

    I find it hard to believe the GCSAA can’t find other and better ways to reduce spending. Truthfully, it comes as no suprise to me, as I believe, our association is being run by a self-serving few.
