Syngenta at the Australasian Turfgrass Conference
The Syngenta team are getting ready for the inaugural Australasian Turfgrass Conference being held in Wellington, NZ at the end of June 2018. Our stand celebrates the hard work turf managers and golf course supers undertake to ensure quality turf surfaces - you work hard to prepare and protect your turf to ensure it performs at it's best.
Syngenta invests in innovative technology and solutions and we have a few new products to discuss at our stand and we'll also be running spray workshops for those of you who have registered to attend these.
Mike De Luca, our ANZ Technical Manager will present a session on Sportsfield Durability and Albie Leggett, one of our Territory Sales Managers is sharing his insights into Insect Management. As usual we look forward to sponsoring the President's Dinner on Monday 25 June where the winner of the Claude Crockford Award will be announced. This award recognises golf course superintendents for their commitment to sustainable land management, long-term environmental planning, community involvement and overall environmental stewardship of their golf course.
It is named in honour of Claude Crockford who was superintendent at the world-renowned Royal Melbourne Golf Club between 1937 and 1975. While Royal Melbourne is famed for its greens, it was Crockford’s championing of golf course environmental management which he is most remembered for within the industry. That legacy continues today through the Claude Crockford Environmental Award. With golf courses under increasing public and legislative scrutiny, environmental management and responsibility has become a primary concern for the modern day superintendent. This award has become one of the most sought after at the annual presentation ceremony and always attracts a highly competitive field of nominees. Syngenta is the proud sponsor of this award.
Finally don't forget to register your details to receive a microscope for your phone which you can pick up from our stand.
