Turfgrass Growers Association publishes first official newsletter

9.15am 15th May 2000 - Corporate

“TGA News” is intended to inform and educate all involved or interested in commercial turf production and the installation of cultivated turf in professional and domestic situations.

The Turfgrass Growers Association was formed in 1997. This helped to focus more clearly the minds of professional turf growers, promoting a greater understanding of the changing needs of turf buyers and their customers.

Widespread demand for high quality lawns, sports grounds and amenity grass areas means that developers, landscapers and groundstaff are specifying quality seeded turf grown using STRI-recognised cultivars bred and mixed to suit the specific purpose. There is no doubt that the demand for quality turf will accelerate.

Meeting this need is a principal objective of the TGA. “The Association is achieving these aims by means of regular discussion groups, visits to suppliers to the turfgrass industry and through meetings addressed by guest speakers,” says TGA chief executive, David Clarke. “It is important for the future of quality turf production in the UK that the TGA is a strong and respected organisation. To that end we are aiming to establish closer working relationships with turf buyers and specifiers as well as associations and organisations representing professional turf users such as golf greenkeepers, groundsmen, landscapers and contractors.

Copies of “TGA News” are available free on request. The publication includes a list of Association members and affiliates
