Formed in 1960, the Nursery Sod Growers Association of Ontario (N.S.G.A.) is a non-profit organization dedicated to the betterment of the turfgrass sod industry. The main objectives of the association are to develop and maintain high standards of turfgrass sod quality, to stimulate consumer knowledge of quality turfgrass sod, to work in close co-operation with allied professions to the benefit of consumer and trade alike, and to gather, analyse and disseminate information of general interest to the public, governmental agencies and other organizations.
The Nursery Sod Growers Association of Ontario funds research at the University of Guelph to determine which species, cultivars and techniques will produce a superior turfgrass sod for the consumer. The Association supports the Guelph Turfgrass Institute - a world-class turfgrass research and education centre. Regular meetings provide our members with a forum for the discussion and dissemination of information. When you purchase Number One Grade Turfgrass Nursery Sod from members of N.S.G.A., you receive a product grown by employing the best techniques of modern agronomy. Grown from superior grass strains, the turfgrass sod has been carefully nurtured ensuring that the unseen roots are just as strong and healthy as the grass you see. The grass has been carefully mowed and weeds have been controlled to produce a product which provides a high degree of consumer satisfaction.
