Scotts Seminar gets seal of Approval from Turf Profesionals
By Lucy Ohsten
Continuing its programme of working closely with turf professionals, Scotts recently held a Stress Management in Turf seminar at Singing Hills Golf Course, in West Sussex. The aim of the event was to help greenkeepers and groundsmen get the best from some of the company's new and existing products, with the possible water restrictions in southern England being a major topic.
The seminar was jointly organised with distributor Avoncrop Amenity Bracknell and attracted 42 attendees. These comprised representatives from 20 golf clubs, Brighton & Hove Albion Football Club, Kent County Cricket Club's Beckenham ground, Adur District Council, Brighton & Hove City Council and Burgess Hill Bowling Club.
Michael Fance, from Scotts, said "The aim of the seminar was to give this group the latest information about how they can significantly reduce turf stress by using Scotts products. These are specifically Primo MAXX, our revolutionary new turf growth regulator, the new Greenmaster liquid fertilizer range, Greenmaster Blade fertilizer, and H2Pro wetting agent, which is particularly relevant in this very dry year.
"We had some positive feedback from attendees, who said they found the day very informative and interesting. We are keen to organise more of these seminars in the future, not only to keep turf professionals informed, but as part of our programme of supporting our distributors."
