The growers of Turfgrass Seed in Washington voted to establish the Washington Turfgrass Seed Commission for the purposes of funding research in the production, processing, or distribution of turfgrass seed, collecting and disseminating information on turfgrass seed and turfgrass seed by-products, and establishing and conducting programs to develop markets for turfgrass seed and byproducts, including straw utilization projects. In accordance with the marketing order, the Washington Turfgrass Seed Commission collects assessments from growers to pursue its purposes.
