International Sports Turf Research Center

By partnering with ISTRC, we can help you develp a better understanding of the physical properties of your sand-based and push-up greens.  ISTRC examines the solids, water capillaries and air pores in your soil to help determine the best physical soil makeup for your turf.

ISTRC's main objective is to provide superintendents with the information that not only identifies greens/athletic fields physical properties, but also provides the necessary information to be proactive in regards to cultural practices that affect the turf.  Over the years, the premis of annual monitoring has become a staple in superintendents' programs throughout the country.
