TURFSOLV BLOG

Over the past 20 years I have developed an expertise in using plant biostimulants and soil microbes to help turfgrass managers optimise plant health and nutrition and to reduce/eliminate the use of pesticides. Enhancing the biological interaction between the plant roots and the soil microbiolgy is the key for optimising turfgrass nutrition but is little understood by many turfgrass managers who are under pressure to increase quality and reduce costs. I offer research based agronomy and products trial services for golf courses and sports pitches that find solutions to your challenges. Andrew Turnbull | Turfsolv’s resident expert.
