The Lawn Society seeks affiliation with Sports Turf Research Institute

The Lawn Society is currently seeking Trade Affiliation with the Sports Turf Research Institute, known as The STRI, based in Bingley, West Yorkshire.  Visit their web site

The STRI is the independent market leader in turf grass research and agronomy. It is the UK's national centre for consultancy in Sports & Amenity Turf and a recognised world centre for research. What they do not know about turf is anybodies question....

The STRI's research continues to shape the future golf courses and playing surfaces of the sports turf industry. As a major international turf grass research centre, STRI has 75 years of unequalled scientific and practical experience.

They also work closely with most sports governing bodies. They are official agronomists to The Royal & Ancient Golf Club of St Andrews (R & A) and help to ensure that all golf courses used for the Open Championship Event reach the required standards.

The STRI's consultancy team advise at over 2000 turf facilities, including golf, soccer, rugby, cricket, racing, bowling and tennis.  They will take away samples of turf and soil for scrutiny, analysis and research related matters.

If you have a professional sportsturf related problem requiring some specialist advice, why not contact The STRI and arrange a technical visit.  The technical visit may include a written technical report in which they can make short medium and long term recommendations on the sports surface and maintenance regimes.

The cost of their technical services will save you many £££ of your budget if you take their advice.....
