HortiTrends Weekly News and Comment - Chalara All Ireland Conference - Importance of Technology Highlighted in New UK/Ireland Turf Rewards - April 15th

A cross border conference has been announced to plan the way forward in the fight back against Chalara. It takes place on the 8th of May at the Crowne Plaza Dundalk and will be an opportunity for the whole industry to come together to find a way to minimise the impact on the environment and wider horticulture sector. In an interview with Barry Lupton for the latest edition of Horticulture Connected magazine (www.horticulture.ie) John Murphy of Annaveigh was dissapointed by the response from government to an appeal for help/compensation for tree nurseries across Ireland, for losses sustained due to the outbreak. He rightly pointed out that if it were any other sector in agriculture then compensation for losses would have been surely forthcoming. A chance to have their voices heard, at the conference on the day would be welcome.

Everris and Syngenta have announced a number of dates across Ireland for the launch of their new Turf Rewards and ParryMeter. Colman Warde of Everris told us "We believe that the best turf is created by taking a holistic approach, and that responsible turf management requires consideration, understanding and forward planning. We are supplying the best turfcare maintenance products based on the very latest research. This means that golf course superintendents and pitch managers can assure their committee, that Everris and Syngenta products will deliver outstanding turf for their members and players."

In promoting the the new Turf Rewards they also say, that they are offering all turfcare staff the opportunity to earn and utilise the latest technology and training to get the very best out of their sports surfaces. One of these pieces of technology is the ParryMeter, a revolutionary new high performance measurement tool that enables you to accurately measure the Smoothness & Trueness of fine turf surfaces. Its quite futuristic looking, but as we are seeing everywhere nowadays, advances in technology mean that it will become the norm, so expect to see this coming to a golf course near you soon, as they roll out the Turf Rewards across Ireland and the UK.
