greencast comp Scotts and Syngenta are joining forces to address all aspects of turf disease management at a series of special seminars during March.

Leading turf disease expert Dr Mike Agnew, technical manager at Syngenta USA, heads the line up of speakers. His presentation on the principles and strategies of turf disease management will be supported by papers from Scotts and Syngenta personnel, including Simon Barnaby, Syngenta Professional Products technical manager, who will cover new technologies, particularly the introduction of Banner MAXX and GreenCast.

Tuesday 20 March - Ricoh Arena, Coventry
Wednesday 21 March - Oatridge College, near Edinburgh
