Nordic Greenkeepers Conference
As greenkeepers are aware, due to government regulations the chemicals that are available in our industry are always being cut back. A topic of conversation that always comes up at conferences is what to do if (and when) the government bans the use of chemicals on golf courses and sports fields? Our keynote speaker is Ian Macmillan, the founder of the „Macmillan Methodolgy“ chemical free greenkeeping which Estonian Golf and Country Club has been following for several years. Ian will spend his time explaining how to use soil biology to build up plant immunity to disease, and how to get through the harsh winters that we experience in the Nordic countries without the use of harmful chemicals. In addition to building up plant immunity, he will explain how using his method you can breed poa annua out of your putting surfaces using nutrition and plant biology.
