Written by:

Turf ecology specialist Paul Looby has joined the Living Turf team in Far Nth QLD, as Technical Service Representative.

Paul is a highly regarded turf scientist, with national experience and a strong network professional turf contacts. Having had a long-standing association with Chris Johnstone (Living Turf Sales Manager Nth Qld), Paul’s appointment to this role is a natural fit.

Living Turf Managing Director, Rob Coopers says “It is a challenge to properly service this vast North and Far North Queensland region. Having a dedicated technical specialist working alongside a sales operative just makes sense. It means we can respond quickly for disease diagnosis, technical problem solving and market support.”

Originally from NSW, Paul is an Ag Science graduate who has a long pedigree in turf. For the past 4 years Paul has resided in Cairns, where he founded ‘Botanic Research’ – a company that delivers scientific trial work for Australia’s leading plant protection companies. This appointment is timely, as Living Turf recently launched to the North Queensland market with a highly successful seminar at the Cowboys Stadium in Townsville.

“There are so many great turf facilities in this part of the world for us to work with, from racing, to golf, to sports fields and more” says Paul. “I am looking forward to working with Chris Johnstone and the rest of the team at Living Turf”.

Paul’s recruitment continues the national rollout of Living Turf’s unique offer, which blends technology, product, irrigation, and agronomy expertise.

Paul Looby can be contacted at, or by phone on 0404 437 320.
