Oxygen and Turfgrass
Our air is cleansed by plants through the process of photosynthesis. Green plants take in carbon dioxide and water and use the energy from sunlight in photosynthesis, which produces carbohydrates for the plant to live off of and releases the true breath of life ... pure oxygen.
A turf area 50' x 50' produces enough oxygen to meet the every day needs of a family of four and each acre of grass produces enough oxygen for 64 people a day.
The grass and trees along our country's interstate system produce enough oxygen to support 22 million people!
NOTE: Survey data was collected by the Maryland Agricultural Statistics Service which also tabulated the results and wrote the findings. Survey results can be viewed at http://iaa.umd.edu/umturf/MTC%20Survey/MTC%20PRIMARY%20PAGE.
