Advisory committee

"It is important for scientists in countries with similar problems and climates to work together and share research results so that our collective knowledge improves. STERF supports Scandinavian scientists in their efforts to reduce pesticide use in turfgrass systems, understand causes and prevention of winter injury, and solve other problems that are unique to northern climates.  Scientists and turfgrass managers in other countries use STERF-funded research to provide answers to these problems".
