The two day event provided a valuable insight into the sportsturf management industry and looked at developments and emerging trends which will impact the industry over the next few years. Now in its fourth year, the event is one of the ‘must attend’ events in the calendar for greenkeepers, course managers, fine turf managers, groundstaff and sports professionals.

Gordon McKillop, Chief Executive, STRI, said: “This year’s event was a huge success and again attracted a great turnout from the industry. The latest insight and knowledge from our own scientists and industry experts was delivered to a wide variety of sports professionals and turf managers. We introduced an additional station for this year and covered topics ranging from nutritional management, disease management and plant health to growing turf in difficult conditions, application tools and methodology, as well as looking at some of the latest technology and machinery.

“STRI is proud to work closely in partnership with a variety of companies who are at the forefront of research within the sportsturf industry. This event represents the ideal opportunity to find out about the latest innovative products, technology and techniques being trialled and continuing to advance the industry by sharing knowledge and best practice. “
