Research and development

STRI is continually researching and developing ways to improve the performance of playing surfaces across a wide range of sports.

We understand that the reputation and success of your sports club is reflected in the quality and condition of your playing surface.

Therefore our research team is focused on supporting the sports turf industry by exploring cost-effective ways to produce high quality durable surfaces.
