Practical Sustainability Seminars

Miranda Harrisin Industry News

CIMG0702.jpgDLF Trifolium, are running a very successful series of seminars titled "Practical Sustainability" to help turf managers achieve a quality, sustainable turf surface. The seminars, the next one being held at Wilmslow Golf Course on October 23rd, will demonstrate the benefits and use of more frequent overseeding within any prudent turf management programme.

"The R&A definition of sustainability in relation to golf course development and management," explains Derek Smith, Amenity Manager for DLF Trifolium, "is optimising the playing quality of the golf course in harmony with the conservation of its natural environment under economically sound and socially responsible management."

The events will cover all aspects including:

· Why oversow and which grass ? - Derek Smith, DLF Trifolium
· Creating a receptive rootzone - Martin Ward, Symbio
· Effective overseeding (practical) - Keith Kensett, R & K Kensett
· Primo Maxx - Simon Barnaby, Syngenta
· Managing for a quality sward - Andy Cole, Henry Bechelet, S.T.R.I.

This will be an exciting and interesting opportunity for all turf professionals i.e. greenkeepers and groundsmen interested in improving the quality of their course. The events will be free of charge but numbers will be limited, therefore tickets will be on a first come, first served basis. The course is recognised by BIGGA and greenkeepers will qualify for points towards Master Greenkeeper/3 CPD professional credits. The event will start at 9am and finish at 2.30pm.
