GIS Show February 2019 - San Diego
Mich had the pleasure of going to the GIS show in San Diego February 2019. He had the pleasure of meeting with our key suppliers and making new connections. Mick met with Earthway's John and Brian who we are the Australian Distributor for, looking at new products to bring to the market within the next 12 months like the Flex Select Range. He also spent time with Dr Rich Hurley who is the renowned breeder of 007 and 777 Bentgrass, fantastic mind with lots of great knowledge. Mick also spoke with Billy and Neil from Evergreen who supply our growth mats which have been very successful at major stadiums and golf courses. It was also great to catch up again with Dr Leah Brilman who was in Australia speaking at one of our Seminars.
Our major seed supplier DLF were prominent at the show and Mick was able to spend quality time with our key supply people to keep up to date with the turf grass breeding which we will bring to the market.
The GIS is a large show which has between 15,000 to 20,000 delegates go through each year. It takes approximately 2 days to completely get through. We try to attend the show every year as it is good to always be looking for new products and opportunities.
Kingborough Twin Sports Field Complex
The Kingborough Twin Sports Field Complex,in Hobart Tasmania, was constructed in 2010.
The ovals were first seeded with the Seed Research ryegrass varieties,SR4220 and SR4600 and proved to be a successful turf surface for all the Sporting Clubs involved.
Due to the ceased production of the SR4220,the ovals were oversown with SR4660ST Ryegrass earlier this year. The SR4660ST was chosen for it’s rapid spreading tillering which leads to turf recovery as well as it’s dark green colour and improved wear resistance.
These ovals are an excellent example of the variety chosen and the expertise of the groundstaff involved.
