GreenCast is the most comprehensive website for weather forecasting, disease risk prediction, turf management information and turf specific application advice, according to Syngenta GreenCast Project Manager, Karen Roberts. “And it remains completely free for all turf managers, agronomists and students. They just have to register once, to gain full access to all the resources and in-depth knowledge.”

She also highlights site features that include Weather Radar Information, so users can track weather fronts moving across the country and foresee potential issues. “Used in conjunction with the unique Syngenta Spray Windows Forecast, greenkeepers and turf managers can plan spraying opportunities and programme work schedules,” she advises.

“It’s part of our ongoing commitment to provide the most useful information for turf managers in a quick and convenient format; GreenCast remains the one-stop site for proactive turf management.”

GreenCast is also now available as a mobile website, enabling greenkeepers, turf managers and agronomists to have instant access to practical information whilst out on the course or pitch, direct to their iPhone, Blackberry or mobile phone.

  • Five-day local and national disease & weather forecasting – proven by course managers to be more accurate than other turf-focussed weather providers
