I trust you are keeping well.

Please enclosed find STERF yearbook 2014, which will give you an idea of STERF´s ongoing activities and projects. In 2014 STERF had 22 ongoing projects related to integrated pest management, sustainable water management, winter stress management, and multifunctional golf facilities and ecosystem services, all of them presented in the yearbook.

Other important STERF activities were: the international seminar on Turfgrass winter survival arranged in Gjovik Norway, the Nordic seminar about multifunctional golf facilities held  in Copenhagen, the workshop about multifunctional golf facilities arranged  in Beijing, the DTRF and STERF seminar about sustaining golf´s playing quality held in Zandvoort, eight new R&D projects were started, three new handbooks were published about Primo Maxx, fungicide leaching and societal benefits of golf and STERF is proud to present several activities within the Industrial scientific partner programme.

Please let us know if you have any questions or comments related to the yearbook. Your feedback on STERF’s ongoing projects and activities would be very valuable for us. Ideas of potential new programmes and projects would also be interesting and inspiring.

Please forward the yearbook to colleagues and friends that might be interested in STERF’s activities and projects. Also feel free to inform about or publish the yearbook on your web-site or in your newsletter.
