Field Trials Day and Sping meeting - Trials Postponed
Unfortunately, due to ground conditions the outdoor exhibition and trials part of the TGA event did not go ahead.
However, the morning meeting still went ahead and the companies due to exhibit instead brought their stands into Agrigem’s warm warehouse alongside the morning speakers.
The mornings speakers included Christian Spring from STRI who covered everything from innovations in sports surfaces to what Brexit means for the industry. Henry Bechelet the technical manager for ICL advised members about the fertiliser options and the use of controlled release technology. The Meeting sponsor Agrigem was represented by Kieran Would who reminded the members about safe practices for chemical storage. Many of the exhibitors also gave short presentations about their companies and products these included: Wessex International, Campey Turf Care Systems, Major Equipment, Tour Turf, Barenburg and Germinal.
The TGA are pleased to announce that the field trials event has been rearranged for the 19th July kindly hosted by Tillers Turf, please save the date. Further details will be released shortly.
