DAVID DOGUET, TURFGRASS BREEDER David Doguet has over forty (40) years of experience in the turfgrass industry. He began his career as a manager for Milberger Turf Farms in Bay City, Texas in the late 60’s. He then started a new company, Quality Turf Grass in 1978 which grew to several thousand acres of St. Augustine and Bermudagrass production across Texas and worked with research on Zoysia and Buffalo grasses. He co-owned and operated that company until its sale in 1988. While at Quality Turf, David grew mostly commodity grasses (St. Augustine and Bermuda) just like everyone else in the area. As long as there was high demand, business was good and when demand lessened, prices fluctuated dramatically. David decided there had to be an alternative to just growing the same products as everyone else. He started visiting universities talking to turfgrass breeders and trying to come up with new grass varieties that would meet the needs of the future, particularly less maintenance. So, in 1988, Quality Turf was sold and in 1989, David and professional golfer Ben Crenshaw started a new grass farming venture, Crenshaw and Doguet Turfgrass in Austin, Texas. The operation began with 350 acres of turf, primarily buffalograss and expanded to over 1000 acres along with licensing rights to numerous grass varieties. David was president of Crenshaw and Doguet from its inception until the sale of the company to a group of investors in 1995.

Licensing innovative turfgrasses to quality producers In the turf industry, the Doguet family name is synonymous with zoysiagrass—and for good reason. Renown Turf Breeder David Doguet is the president of Bladerunner Farms, the largest privately held Zoysiagrass and Buffalograss breeding and research facility in the world. The company has researched and released grasses for more than 30 years. Doguet Ventures, a licensing agent for all Bladerunner Farms varieties and other premium grasses, is owned by David Jr., Daric and Darin Doguet, who are the sons of David, Sr. Our scientifically developed grasses are farm-tested. Our family has a long history of growing and developing environmentally friendly grasses with lower water use requirements, low fertilizer requirements and fewer overall inputs. David, Jr., Daric and Darin grew up on their father’s turf farm, and for the past 15 years they have each had a part in the company’s success. In 2012, the Doguet brothers approached their father about a collaboration. The idea was to create a company of their own and work synergistically with their father’s company, becoming the licensing agent for all Bladerunner grasses, both Zoysias and Buffalograsses, and other premium varieties. That company became Doguet Ventures. David Doguet, Jr. was born into the turf business. From an early age he began working for his dad, David, Sr. on the farms at Quality Turfgrass, then Crenshaw & Doguet Turfgrass. When the opportunity came in 1995 to install and manage Bladerunners’ farm in Poteet, TX, David Jr. packed up and moved. He has spent the time since helping to build that business into the global Zoysiagrass and Buffalograss powerhouse it is today. David has handled ordering, logistics and sales for Bladerunner Farms since 1998 and handles similar aspects of Doguet Ventures.
