Alliance for Low Input Sustainable Turf

We are a national non-profit organization seeking to aid turfgrass managers and grass growers by providing holistic guidelines that account for all factors in sustainable plant growth. The members are comprised of universities and industry companies serving to test, identify, and promote grass varieties that combine 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 independently tested at leading regional universities. We are headquartered in the heart of Oregon’s Willamette Valley grass seed production region.
