Next year STRI celebrates 75 years in the turfgrass industry. To mark this milestone we are planning a programme of eventsSTRI75YearLogo.jpg

All four issues of our International Turfgrass Bulletin magazine, along with the STRI's website, will carry special features highlighting the key developments and major achievements in the industry from 1929 to present times, alongside the regular editorial.

The October Bulletin will be increased in size to act as a commemorative record for the 75th Anniversary. Over the years STRI's unique position has enabled close ties to be formed with many eminent individuals and organisations throughout the turfgrass world. We will be inviting editorial from some of these key players for inclusion in this issue, to reflect the past and future of the sportsturf and amenity sectors worldwide.

To coincide with the publication of this commemorative edition, we are also holding our official celebrations in October around our 'Open Day' on Wednesday 6th, followed by a dinner in the evening.

A special logo has been created to mark the event, which will appear on all our literature over the next twelve months.
