DLF Trifolium and Johnsons Sports Seed launched a competition at this year’s BTME in celebration of their new 4Turf Tetraploid ryegrass cultivars being selected for use at all of the Brazil World Cup stadia and training grounds. One lucky customer, Paul Brazier at Kilworth Springs Golf Club, was the winner of the latest generation iPad air.
Paul has been Head Greenkeeper at the Leicestershire club for 10 years and purchased the new J Tee mixture at BTME after his local distributor recommended the seed for its fast establishment, superior colour and high disease resistance. Upon hearing the good news, Paul commented “I’m absolutely surprised but delighted to have won the competition! I had heard so many good things about this new formula and was looking forward to seeing the results for myself. We have only been using it for a short period of time but are very impressed with the results we have achieved so far. We have been using the J Tee since the spring, on all surfaces other than the greens, and have achieved great germination rates, good colour and vigour and also good drought tolerance. I’m very happy with it and would definitely recommend it; especially as it offers superb value for money… winning the prize was a very welcome bonus!”
