The European Turfgrass Society’s (ETS) 7th Research Conference was scheduled to be held in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, from 29 June to 1 July, 2020.
The theme of this year’s conference, “Turf Solutions for the Future”, was selected to highlight a movement towards the sustainable management of all green spaces.
However, the rapid spread of the novel coronavirus COVID-19 that led to a global pandemic has resulted in travel bans, quarantines and social distancing that have required the postponement or cancellation of large meetings and gatherings.
Consequently, the ETS board decided to cancel the 7th European Turfgrass Society Research Conference.
However, manuscripts of presentations were already submitted and under review, therefore the ETS board has decided to proceed with the publication of the abstracts and research reports.
All 15 papers that cover a variety of topics from authors representing various countries are now available online.
