PACE Turf was founded in 1988 by owners Larry Stowell, Ph.D. and Wendy Gelernter, Ph.D. to provide expert, objective, science-based advice and information to the turf management community. Using research results, on-the-ground experience, and their over 65 years of combined knowledge in agronomy, plant pathology, entomology, weed science and turf science, PACE Turf has long been a leader in translating science into practical turf management information, and in helping turf managers prevent problems before they occur .
PACE Turf offers a membership information service that delivers science-based solutions to turf management problems with breaking research news, information and expert advice on products, practices, pests and weather threats. With information customized specifically for each member’s location, PACE Turf delivers its clear, bottom-line conclusions via email alerts and a state of the art website that is uncluttered by advertising.
