TWCA is excited to partner with Virginia Tech to bring you the 2019 Field Day! With guest speakers, new trials, and the ribbon cutting for TWCA's newest Rainout Shelter (ROS) it promises to be a great event!
Virginia Turf Council will be offering CEUs and pesticide recertification this year for those who need them in the Blacksburg area. Remember, if you're a member of VTC, your registration is free!
As a new Research partner with Dr Mike Goatley and the entire VT Turf team at Virginia Tech's Blacksburg campus we are so excited to feature a ribbon cutting on our brand new Rainout Shelter (ROS) and discuss our ongoing trial ( and the rest of our program) with you. To support our cooperators, TWCA is giving 25% of All membership dues from this event to support Turf Research at Virginia Tech
Look out for Dr John Stier from University of Tennessee as a special guest speaker! Dr Stier currently serves as a member of the TWCA Research Review Committee; the independent body that qualifies, based on objective data collected by our cooperators.

Founded in 2010 by direct competitors in the turfgrass industry, the Turfgrass Water Conservation Alliance (TWCA) is a 501 c(3) non-profit committed to water conservation. We believe that by improving the plant materials available we can reduce the water needs of the managed environment while preserving the vital ecological services provided by green spaces.
Our science based approach to conservation relies on the 3rd party peer review of objective data to qualify only those turfgrasses that demonstrate a statistically significant water saving potential over conventional varieties of the same species. By testing with research collaborators in locations across North America, the TWCA eliminates confounding factors such as soil type, heat, and pest management from the results.
Our more than 150 members world wide represent the green collar industry; government agencies, and academia. The TWCA continues to grow and emphasize the importance of a balanced, scientifically based approach to conservation and the managed environment.
