Well-known in the industry, Gareth Rogers has been appointed by Symbio as Technical Sales Manager in Scotland.
A keen golfer, Gareth joins the Surrey-based firm after 5 years at Fairways GM. Before moving into sales, his greenkeeping career spanned 20 years at Grimsby, Elsham, Crieff Hydro, Merrist Wood and Gleneagles golf clubs.
He comments, "I'm delighted to have joined Symbio. As a former greenkeeper, I know exactly what can be done to develop and maintain healthy rootzones and excellent playing surfaces using its unique products and approach. Sustainable technologies are changing the way sports turf is managed. With chemical use under increasing pressure across Europe and being limited by legislation, our product range goes a long way to filling the void."
Established in 1990, Symbio was the first company to combine soil biology and chemistry to develop a range of industry-changing products including launching Green Circle in 1992, the first biotech product for nutrient retention and recycling for sports turf.
Since then some of the company's industry firsts include:- Thatch Eater to convert thatch to plant food, mycorrhizal fungi to promote perennial grasses and in some cases more than halve fertiliser use; Liquid Aeration to oxygenate the rootzone; compost teas to restore life to chemically damaged and compacted rootzones which together with a comprehensive selection of fertilisers, biostimulants, Johnsons seeds and wetting agents, provides a complete range for healthy soil and plant growth.
