Turf Europe is the official organizer of the ETS Field Days 2013

On behalf of the ETS - European Turfgrass Society. Turf Europe Srl is happy to welcome ETS-members and other turfgrass enthusiasts to the 3rdETS Field Days in Monte Carlo, Monaco (www.etsfielddays2013.com).
The ETS Field Days is a 2 day event that is organised every two years in different European countries and it is intended to promote the exchange of information among turfgrass specialists from universities, official bodies and private companies.

Given the recent approval by EU and Member States of a set of legislations that will progressively limit the use of agrochemicals in urban green areas, the theme of the 2013 Field Days in Monte Carlo is “Integrated turfgrass management: towards the limitation of the use of agrochemicals”.

As usual, there will be a first day (September 30th) of Conference with technical lectures and a EU-USA Round Table on “Legislation towards the limitation of agrochemicals: EU and USA experiences and best practices”. The Round Table will bring together turfgrass scientists and specialists from both Continents to share views, ideas and experiences in this particular field. The EU-USA Round Table and all the rest of the Conference Program is coordinated by ETS Board Member Prof. Scott McElroy of Auburn University.
The Venue of the conference part of the ETS Field Days 2013 in Monte Carlo will be the Riviera Marriott Hotel La Porte de Monaco.

The morning of the second day (October 1st) we will be visiting the prestigious Monte Carlo Louis II Stadium, which has recently been converted from cool-season to warm-season turfgrass, and wonderful Monte Carlo Golf Club in La Turbie, up on the hills above Monte Carlo, where due to the altitude only cool-season turfgrass species are employed.
