Myerscough College has presented Toro with a special commemorative plaque in recognition of the company’s sponsorship support for its high-profile turfgrass conference.
The college, in Preston, Lancashire – the only place in Europe that runs turf science degree courses- used Toro’s cash to host a two-and-a-half-day keynote conference on the microbiology of turfgrass systems. The event attracted speakers from as far afield as the United States and was attended by more than 150 delegates.
Toro’s support also enabled the college to fund a subscription to the Michigan State University’s Turfgrass Information File. This internet databank contains thousands of helpful research papers on turfgrass science
Martyn Jones, programme leader of Turf Science at Myerscough College, said, “We are grateful to The Toro Company for its generous sponsorship to support our activities. It enabled us to host a high-profile conference, which we are repeating in November, and to access information on the internet which is proving vital to our students.”
