University of Minnesota turfgrass researchers need your input

Posted By MNLA eNews, Thursday, June 14, 2018

Dear Minnesota Nursery and Landscape Association members:

I am writing to request your participation in a Turfgrass Cultivar Evaluation Database survey of those involved in the turfgrass industry. The survey will take 15-20 minutes to complete.

Purpose of the survey. Currently, the agency coordinating multi-state turfgrass cultivars evaluation is the National Turfgrass Evaluation Program (NTEP). Researchers representing several universities are designing a database for turfgrass cultivar results so we are interested in learning the following:

  • How you use turfgrass cultivar evaluation data currently
  • How you might want to use turfgrass cultivar evaluation data in the future

Please note:

  • This survey is not sponsored by NTEP.
  • Your participation in this survey is completely voluntary.
  • All of your responses are anonymous and none of the responses will be connected to identifying information.
  • The survey is being conducted using Qualtrics, a cloud based software that stores data on secure servers.
  • If you receive this invitation from more than one source, please do not answer this survey more than once.

Follow this link to the Survey:

If you have any questions about this survey, or difficulty in accessing the site or completing the survey, please contact Eric Watkins at ewatkins@umn.edu or 612-624-7496. If you have any questions or concerns about your role and rights as a research participant, you may contact, anonymously if you wish, the Research Subjects’ Advocate Line, D528 Mayo 420 Delaware St. Southeast, Minneapolis MN 55455; 612-625-1650.

Thank you in advance for providing this important feedback.

Sincerely,
Dr. Eric Watkins

Minnesota Community Gravel Bed Inventory

Posted By MNLA eNews, Tuesday, May 22, 2018

Minnesota has emerged as one of the national leaders in using community gravel beds to affordably reforest their communities, special projects or host Arbor Day community tree sales. There is only one problem. We don’t have a good directory that locates all of the gravel beds in Minnesota.  With your help, we can correct that one, little deficiency.

 People learn from each other, and that’s our goal as we assemble this electronic directory. Each of you who have installed and used community gravel beds have learned something that you could share with another community or group, and vice versa. It’s often those little “tricks” or innovations that makes a gravel bed even more successful.

 The community gravel bed directory will be entirely electronic. The locater map will note your gravel bed, clicking on it will direct the user to a dedicated web page with the information and any photos you contribute to the web page. Contact information will be greatly appreciated for those communities or groups that wish to connect with you for any more information.

 We appreciate your willingness to be part of this directory and the time you contribute to filling out the accompanying survey.

Below is a link to a google form that can be filled out. If you know of other organizations in your area that use gravel beds, please let us know or feel free to forward this email.

If you have any further questions about the survey, the locater map and the individual community web pages, please feel free to contact one of us.

 Respectfully yours,

 Daniel Yoder (yoder019@umn.edu)

Wrapping Your Head Around Tax Reform

Posted By MNLA eNews, Tuesday, March 27, 2018

Thanks to the just passed Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA), the tax rate for incorporated greenhouse businesses will be reduced from its current 35% to 21% for the 2018 tax year and thereafter. And, although the business tax cuts are permanent, the tax cuts for individuals are temporary, expiring in 2026.

Unfortunately, while regular “C” corporations will be taxed at a flat 21% tax rate, the majority of small businesses and professional practices doing business as pass-through businesses will face new personal tax rates higher than the corporate tax rate.
