The National Turfgrass Evaluation Program
(NTEP) is designed to develop and coordinate
uniform evaluation trials of turfgrass varieties and promising selections
in the United States and Canada. Test results can be used by national
companies and plant breeders to determine the broad picture of the
adaptation of a cultivar. Results can also be used to determine
if a cultivar is well adapted to a local area or level of turf maintenance.
