2016 Conference Program
The Southwest Turfgrass Association (SWTA) made its debut with the first annual conference and show in 1955 through the cooperative efforts of New Mexico State University and professionals in the turfgrass industry. The Southwest Turfgrass Association (SWTA) is an educational, research and management organization dedicated to promoting the benefits of turfgrasses and supporting the turfgrass industry.
The Association’s main event is the Annual Turfgrass Conference and Show. Comprised of professionals from the green industry and related fields, the annual conference brings our membership together with seminars and workshops, providing CEUs to those who need them and providing those involved with an invaluable opportunity to learn and share ideas. Participants can attend presentations by Extension Specialists and guest speakers. The trade show runs concurrently with the seminars allowing participants to either view products and equipment, or attend presentations.
Proceeds of the conference support undergraduate and graduate students in the landscape and turfgrass program and turfgrass research at New Mexico State University. The SWTA believes that even in the desert southwest there is a place for the responsible use of turfgrasses and we are leading the way to show how turfgrass improves the quality of life for everyone.
