ISTRO has been actively involved in registering Branches in countries which will benefit from local organization. The formal registration of an ISTRO Branch offers several advantages and opportunities to scientists desiring to become part of the global network of agricultural scientists. ISTRO Membership fees are reduced to only 1/3 of the regular base fee for low-economy countries, local currency can be collected and pooled within a country to facilitate payment of fees, and Branch activities bring local scientists together for a meeting at least once a year. Branch members have full voting rights and are considered full Members within ISTRO.
The International Soil Tillage Research Organization branches have been formed in Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Kenya, Mexico, Nigeria, Pakistan, Poland, Romania, Russia/St. Petersburg, Slovakia, Turkey, and Ukraine. Additional branches are in the process of formal formation and others are expected as interested ISTRO members organize themselves.
Some National branches have their own websites
