ITGAP is an internationally recognized turfgrass certification program.
Whether it is a golf course, sports arena, or a high end landscape project, ITGAP will ensure quality growing protocols are followed in the growing process of various turfgrasses used in commercial and residential projects.
Want the same quality you’ve come to expect? If yes, look for the International Turfgrass Genetic Assurance Program (ITGAP) certificate of assurance.
Instituted by the Georgia Crop Improvement Association, the largest certifier of U.S. grown turfgrasses, ITGAP ensures that certified grasses are grown, inspected, and sold under rigorous protocols that promote ongoing purity and uniformity.
When you deal with an ITGAP-licensed grower, you know your turfgrass has been produced under rigid production protocols that emphasize a known source of planting material.
