14th International Turfgrass Research Conference, 10-15 July 2022, Copenhagen, Denmark
We are pleased to announce the 14th International Turfgrass Research Conference which will take place on 10-15 July 2022 in Copenhagen, Denmark.
The overall theme of the ITRC 2022 is Development and Sustainability. The challenges for the future of the turfgrass sector are many and diverse. Climate change impacts are exceeding the worst expectations. Strong restrictions on the use of chemicals and fertilizers, and increasing pressure on natural resources (notably water, energy and land) are expected. There is an accelerating loss of ecosystem services and biodiversity in the urban landscapes. All this calls for more research and innovation for a sustainable future. The United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) set out in Agenda 2030 will constitute the conference programme framework. The conference is an arena established to exchange knowledge and experiences with the best experts in this field.

Campey Turf Care Systems Excited to Welcome Attendees to Saltex 2021
After a year away from the Birmingham NEC, Campey Turf Care Systems is excited to welcome show attendees onto stand H082 at Saltex 2021.
The two-day indoor exhibition on November 3rd and 4th signifies an important milestone on the road to normality and is an excellent opportunity for the Campey team to catch up with old and new customers.
Speaking about the upcoming show, Campey Turf Care Systems Managing Director Julia Campey said: “The return of an indoor show has been a long time coming, and we are all looking forward to seeing everyone in person to talk about the latest machinery, turf maintenance techniques and industry news.
“It’s been a difficult time for everyone, and whilst things seem to be reaching some normality, this is one of the most significant milestones in our industry because we’ve been without an indoor show for so long.
“We’re excited to have the Campey range of machinery on display, including the new Campey Pedestrian AeraSeeder, which will be on show for the first time at Saltex.”
The brand-new Campey Pedestrian AeraSeeder will be exhibited along with popular machines from Air2G2, Imants, Koro by Imants, Vredo and Dakota. The pedestrian overseeder is an exciting addition to Campey’s range, with it specifically added to tackle hard to reach areas that larger machines can’t access.
Smaller areas such as ornamental gardens, cemetery plots, golf greens, goalmouths, and other bare areas are easily accessible for the machine, which is only 83cm wide. It provides simple yet accurate overseeding, with a 60cm seeding area and a multi-spiked roller that produces approximately 800 perforations per square yard, effectively saturating the top surface with a network of holes.
This network, combined with the brush and smooth packing roller systems and stainless-steel seed apertures, offers the highest percentage of grass seed germination.
