Work with cultivated turf growers
My work with turf growers has continued and I have a regular client base, with two new clients this year.
I continue to work with the Turfgrass Growers Association and ran courses on Understanding Turf Quality for growers in the autumn.
I am an experienced expert witness and this year am again involved in a planning dispute – the first for many years. Most County Council planning departments have accepted that modern turf production is an arable crop and is rated accordingly. Another expert witness job is on the horizon for 2018.
I also continue to provide the section on turf production in the ‘John Nix Pocketbook for Farm Management’.
