Visitors to the Sherriff Amenity stand (110), located in the Blue Zone at BTME 2019, will be able to find out more about the award winning PrecisionPro app, which recently scooped the SALTEX 2018 Innovation of the Year Award.

PrecisionPro, is a dedicated app for sports turf to measure any area, guide the operator in calibrating a spreader for any granular product and also help apply fertilisers accurately. It was created due to the common issue of turf managers misjudging green/sport surface size which often results in problems such as over applying or under applying fertilisers - both of which can have a negative effect on turf performance, disease and budget.

PrecisionPro allows turf managers to have an accurate measured area by simply opening the app and walking the perimeter of the area. Calibrating spreaders has always been a difficult task but with the Calibrate feature in the PrecisionPro app, users are guided through each step of the process. Furthermore, its advanced GPS functionality informs the user when to start and stop the calibration process.

The app also features a function to ensure that every operator walks at the same speed – if someone is walking too fast or too slow then they are alerted by colour coded screens. As well as calculating the g/m2 and the operator’s walking speed, the Apply feature ultimately ensures that the exact amount of nutrition is being applied to the turf.

Sherriff Amenity’s all new Plant Bio-Stimulant Guide, which will be available to pick up on the stand, seeks to explain the term ‘Plant Bio-stimulant’ and explores the activity of an extensive range of plant bio-stimulants, along with their specific claims and intended area of influence. The guide also includes a table of bio-stimulants, indicating their main benefits and specialisation. There are also further considerations on choosing the correct bio-stimulant product, relative to its area of use and to ensure, the purchase of a quality product, given current UK bio-stimulant regulations.

Turf professionals visiting BTME will also be in with a chance of winning some warm merchandise clothing. Simply visit the stand to register your interest and by the end of the day you could be walking away with an Evolution fertiliser branded hoodie or a PrecisionPro branded snood.

The Sherriff Amenity technical team will be out in force at BTME and will be on hand to offer any advice on all things turf. The stand will also feature a coffee barista so why not visit stand 110 in the Blue Zone, have a coffee and find out just how Sherriff Amenity can make a significant difference to the way you manage your turf.

Nick @ NM Garden Services Ltd replied to Allan Steele's discussion Alternative chain for Stihl MSA 200 C and HT-Km pole pruner
"I can't comment on the pole saw but we use the Rotatech chains on our other Stihl chainsaws and in our opinion they seem to stay much sharper for much longer than the Stihl equivalents - and they are much cheaper too!"

Nick @ NM Garden Services Ltd replied to Edward baker's discussion What to wear while spraying
"Along with wellies and correct nitrile gloves we would also recommend a green or blue suit for the reasons Gary's mentioned above!
For our spraying register we use the built in version Jobber offers which is dead easy to use too!"

"If you go look at ProGreen's website (see link from LJN ---->) they have all you need and can offer suitable advice if needed.
I'd always suggest the correct grade blue or green Tyvek suits as they are slightly less obvious and CSI like ;)"

Yes, the Garden Planner is truly a simple software compared to Sketchup (I like to call it Ketchup! ((~8). I can easily see why you wouldn't use it after getting established with Sketchup. I wouldn't even say it has plant lists, just genera…"
