International Turfgrass Society

The International Turfgrass Society (ITS) is a not-for-profit scientific organization established in 1969 to encourage research and education in turfgrass science, and to promote personal communication among the international community of turfgrass researchers by organizing international conferences to present turfgrass research and information on all phases of turfgrass production and use.

To this end, International Turfgrass Research Conferences (ITRC) are held at 4-year intervals. The hosts for past conferences have been England (1969), the United States (1973, 1993), Germany (1977), Canada (1981, 2001), France (1985), Japan (1989), Australia (1997), U.K. (2005), Chile (2009), and China (2013).

The next ITRC will be held in New Brunswick, New Jersey, USA from July 16-21, 2017. A refereed Journal of turfgrass research papers is published in conjunction with each conference, and we plan to offer an option for publication in a Journal with an Impact Factor. Click here for more information.
