Andy Russell and Mark Hunt of Headland Amenity recently took the opportunity to present their latest research to delegates at STRI's annual research event. The two day event was attended by hundreds of Greenkeepers and Groundstaff from across the UK and looked at developments and emerging trends which will impact the industry over the next few years.
Now in its fourth year, STRI Research 2014 is one of the 'must attend' events in the calendar for Greenkeepers, Groundstaff and Sports Professionals. It was held at their research facilities in Bingley and featured demonstrations of innovative products, equipment and techniques currently undergoing scientific trials by the STRI Research team.
One such area of research is Headland's 'non pesticidal management' of disease and showed how treating grass with non pesticidal products, before disease gets a hold, can keep disease at bay.
"Whilst the research we have done so far has shown very good results," says Andy Russell, "we are continuing to trial different product combinations to see if these results can be improved further. We are proud to work in close partnership with the STRI who are at the forefront of research within the sportsturf industry. Mark and I would like to thank all those delegates who came to see our presentation which we hope they found informative and interesting."
