Turf New South Wales

New South Wales Turf Growers Association

The fertile plains of the New South Wales Hawkesbury River and its tributaries are home to Australia's largest turf industry, comprising one-quarter of national production. Turf production is one of the Hawkesbury's largest industries and employers. Sixty separate businesses grow turf on 1625 hectares (4065 acres) and directly employ 240 full-time equivalent workers (NSW Agricultural survey, late 2002). The wholesale value of turf grown would exceed $70 million per annum.

The Hawkesbury turf industry grows a wide variety of specialised grasses, then delivers them to Sydney Australia's largest city, the Illawarra, Central Coast, Hunter and even interstate and overseas. The industry has evolved greatly from the days when kikuyu was cut from old dairy pasture using spades. Nowadays, a highly mechanised and precise industry grows acclimatised grasses on flood-prone land.

For as long as Australians prefer the comfort, beauty and many other benefits of turf, the future of the NSW turf industry looks bright indeed.
