Main objective

The main objective of the Quebec Turfgrass Research Foundation (QTRF) is to work closely with the Canadian Turfgrass Research Foundation (CTRF) to support turf research at the national level while paying particular attention that the different projects apply as much as possible to the Quebec context.



By helping financially different scientific research projects, the Quebec Turfgrass Research Foundation:

  • Provides Quebec golf superintendents and turf managers with additional and relevant tools in the management of their turfgrass.
  • Promotes the study and scientific progress in turfgrasses management but also in entomology, phytopathology, weed science, microbiology, etc.
  • Helps to promote and facilitate sustainable environmental management of different types of turfgrass for all uses (recreational, functional or aesthetic) and for all locations (golf courses, schools, green spaces, sports fields, residential lawns etc.).
