Lawn Solutions Australia USA Study Tour

Written by:

In what is the biggest tour of Australian Turf Growers to the United States, a large contingent of the recently formed Lawn Solutions Australia group has hit the streets of Texas with a jam-packed first day’s activities.

Starting off at Texas A&M University, the University’s Agrilife extension team turned out a terrific presentation to the Lawn Solution’s group on Monday (February 17, 2014).

Some 63 Aussie Producers took part in the morning’s educational sessions – particularly designed to help with understanding the latest knowledge in turfgrass breeding, including a number of varieties soon to be released in Australia.

The tour group then ventured on to the AT&T stadium; home of the Dallas Cowboys, for an inspection of the facility – one of the world’s largest sports venues.

Following the Cowboys tour the Lawn Solutions group then headed for Sealy, also in Texas to spend the night before a number of turf farm tours the next day.

More updates are to come as the tour progresses.
