For only the second time, the United States will host The International Turfgrass Society's (ITS) International Turfgrass Research Conference (ITRC). The VII ITRC will be held July 18-24, 1993 at The Breakers in Palm Beach, FL. Since its inception, the ITS has been devoted to addressing problems that effect turfgrass and improving the standards of turfgrass science through international communication. The Conference will offer two symposia entitled “Pesticide and Nutrient Fate in Turfgrass Systems” and “Quantification of Surface Characteristics of Sports Fields”. Additionally plenary and volunteered oral and poster presentations on all topics of turfgrass science and related horticultural landscape management tours of the local horticultural industries will be offered. Volunteered papers will be published in a proceedings as either original research papers or as technical papers. Papers submitted as original research will undergo refereed peer review prior to acceptance. See poster for further details or contact authors at above address (phone: 305-475-8990).

St. Augustinegrass is a widely used warm-season turfgrass for home lawns throughout the south. St. Augustinegrass prefers moderate cultural practices ( Cisar et al., 1992 ) with a fertility requirement of 10 to 30 g·m −2 ·yr −1 N ( Trenholm et al

Turfgrass dominated landscapes are prominent features of urban watersheds. Milesi et al. (2005) estimated that turfgrass covers 1.9% of the total U.S. surface area, which is similar to previous areal estimates of 10 to 16 million hectares

Horst et al. (1984) studied visual evaluation methods common to turfgrass science and determined that visual evaluations among 10 human evaluators were inconsistent and could be considered inadequate. Assessing turfgrass features such as color
