An Update for Florida Producers
Casey Reynolds, Executive Director, Turfgrass Producers International
In February, I was fortunate enough to attend the Turfgrass Producers of Florida Annual Meeting and Show and meet with growers to discuss the latest updates on the proposed U.S. Sod Checkoff Program. There was a one-hour session that covered the proposed program, how it would work, what to expect in the coming months, and so on. I also had many one-on-one discussions during the trade show with Florida sod producers, university faculty, and vendors. We are still likely more than a year away from an industry-wide referendum on the proposed checkoff, and there is plenty of time to learn more, provide public comments, and ultimately vote. So if you happened to miss the TPF Annual Meeting in February there will certainly be other opportunities to learn more ahead of the upcoming referendum.
