Alliance for Low Input Sustainable Turf

We are a national non-profit organization seeking to aid turf-grass managers and grass growers by providing holistic guidelines that accounts for all factors for sustainable plant growth. The members are cooperative of universities and industry companies, serving to test, identify, and promote grass varieties by combining high turf quality and low-input performance, such as reduced water, chemical, and fertility. We provide information on certified high quality turf that is verified via transparent protocols and independent tested at leading regional universities. We are headquartered in the heart of Oregon’s Willamette Valley grass-seed farming region.
