Groundsman 2017 Spring Seminar and Seed Trials Day at Kirkstall Educational C C Leeds
Introduced by Ian Powell of the IOG with Hurrells Seeds, Agronomic Services and Dennis Sisis.
The Seminar will be a day of looking at and assessing seed trails, plant nutrition and machinery with presentations by David Hodgson KECC Groundsman, Nick Gladstone of Hurrells Seeds, David Snowden Agronomic Services and Ewan Wilson Dennis Sisis.
The idea of the day is to give groundsmen the opportunity to see Seed Trials grown on a real Club Cricket Square. Ian Powell (IOG) will introduce the day giving and give details of recent developments from the IOG. David Hodgson (KECC) will give a history of the trials. Nick Gladstone (Hurrells Seeds) will talk about the current position of the seed industry and give some background into the mixes for the trials. David Snowden (Agronomic Services) will give an insight into plant nutrition for Cricket Grounds. Ewen Wilson (Dennis Sisis) will demonstrate and talk about machinery required to maintain a Cricket Ground.
The day promises to be full of interest for all groundsmen and especially cricket!
