Aitkens Turf Update - May 2015

Welcome to our May issue of Aitkens Turf Update!


Well what a dry May we had! Our rain guage at our Sherburn office recorded a total of 6mm of rain in April. This morning we had a total of 30mm from over the bank holiday weekend.

The rain is most welcomed and we can all just hope that it does not forget to stop as it did a couple of years ago.

We have some interesting offers on our products. Please contact our office or your local technical representative to find out more.
