Turf Australia

Australia’s $3 billion turf industry has developed rapidly over recent years with growers seeking and embracing new technologies to make their businesses more efficient and viable. With 6700 hectares of turf under production at any time, the industry has approximately 400 turf production businesses that employ some 80,000 people. A unique aspect about Australia’s turf industry is its whole-of-supply-chain view which works for the advancement of turf producers and those maintaining small or large tracts of turf. The industry’s ‘new-look’ magazine provides focused, up-to-date information on trends, developments and issues affecting Australia’s turf industry and its markets. Editorial is delivered in an easy-to-read style and includes technical information, research and development, market trends, innovation, production developments, profiles and on-farm reports.
