Genetically Modified Grass is grass that has been modified genetically to give it a particular property such as; increased disease resistance, greater nutritional value, or even a reduction in methane output in the animals that ingest it.
Many local government assets, such as parks & sporting facilities typically contain a lot of grass, and a genetically modified grass designed specifically for municipal purposes could save Councils a lot of money.
Attributes of an ideal Local Grass might include.
- A maximum height - to eliminate the need for mowing.
- No flowers, seeds, or burrs - for obvious reasons.
- Drought resistance - to reduce the need for watering.
- A mechanism to stop it growing in the presence of a common non-toxic material that could be incorporated into edging - to reduce the need for trimming.
