TGA tackles turf growing issues

Issues affecting turf production were discussed at a meeting of Turfgrass Growers' Association (TGA) members at Thornhaugh, near Peterborough.

TGA council members made presentations on the revised Water Bill, withdrawal of key chemicals by the EU and the association's ongoing soil project. STRI senior turfgrass pathologist Dr Ruth Mann stimulated a lively debate with her talk on plant growth retardants.

NFU horticultural adviser Chris Hartfield discussed the involvement of turf in his remit and how to work in co-operation with the TGA.

TGA chief executive Tim Mudge said: "I'm pleased that so many of our members and affiliates attended. The TGA is involved in a number of important industry matters and we like to ensure our members are kept informed every step of the way. We are working more closely with industry bodies and our speaker programme reflected that."
