Seminars Set To Tackle Turf Disease Management

12.20am 15th February 2007 - Management Topics

Scotts and Syngenta are joining forces to address all aspects of turf disease management at a series of special seminars during March.

Leading turf disease expert Dr Mike Agnew, technical manager at Syngenta USA, heads the line up of speakers. His presentation on the principles and strategies of turf disease management will be supported by papers from Scotts and Syngenta personnel, including Simon Barnaby, Syngenta Professional Products technical manager, who will cover new technologies, particularly the introduction of Banner MAXX and GreenCast.

Banner MAXX is a new fast-acting broad spectrum, systemic fungicide that uses unique chemistry to deliver exceptional control of Anthracnose, Dollar Spot and Brown Patch in turf.

GreenCast is a powerful new internet-based decision support service from Syngenta which will enable turf managers to make better informed and proactive decisions for more effective turf management and disease control.

Dates and venues for the seminars are as follows:
Monday 19 March – Woodbury Park Hotel & Country Club, near Exeter
Tuesday 20 March – Ricoh Arena, Coventry
Wednesday 21 March – Oatridge College, near Edinburgh
Thursday 22 March – Huddersfield Golf Club (Fixby Hall), Huddersfield
Friday 23 March – Wentworth Golf Club, Wentworth
