Turfgrass management is the intentional care for low canopies of grass(es), family Poaceae. At the minimum, such care must involve mowing or cutting of leaf blades, usually with mechanical equipment. The possible purposes and benefits of turfgrass management may be recreation, esthetic appearance of the landscape, safety, evaporative cooling, conservation of soil or water, fire protection, and sanitation. If the purpose for caring for a grass canopy is a traditional agricultural product such as (1) feed, (2) fiber, or (3) food, then the appropriate category would be (1) Pastures and Forages, (2) Fiber Crops, or (3) Crops.
