TGA websiteThe Turfgrass Growers Association (TGA) is embarking upon a major recruitment drive to encourage growers to get involved with its work.  Formed in 1996 the TGA has successfully represented, promoted and defended its members, and the industry, on planning issues crop protection and water issues as well as providing a platform for speakers at its many events.

TGA Chairman, Robert Adcock, says “The TGA is now recognised as the voice of the turfgrass industry and we want to get more companies involved.  Going forward there will be many more challenges for us to face and we will be a stronger organisation with a wider membership base.”

A new self-assessment application form for membership is being sent to all UK growers this month, along with a fact sheet about the TGA, to encourage them to join. All members of the TGA will be required to complete an annual self-assessment form from now on to make sure they are complying with the TGA rules and code of conduct in their businesses.

“The turf growing industry has evolved dramaticallyand our members provide a quality product to a very demanding industry in the most professional way possible.  The TGA has helped to drive this professionalism and we want to continue with that work, and much more besides.” added Adcock.
