A successful turfing company hosted an international show on Tuesday with companies represented from all over Europe and the United States.

Fineturf, of Carlton Scroop, was hosting the biennial Turfgrass Growers Show for the second time. Companies put on demonstrations of the latest machinery and product innovations used in the growing and harvesting of quality cultivated turf.

Among the companies represented were John Deere and Grantham-based R. C. Setchfield which has a JCB franchise.

Fineturf director Simon Hutton said: “The show went extremely well. The figures were better than we had expected. This is an event held all over the UK and it attracts the leading manufacturers and suppliers in the turf industry.

“The fine weather made the day. Growers were able to congregate in the field and discuss the industry and they were able to see the latest state-of-the-art products.”
