Turf ecology experts Living Turf have appointed former Commonwealth and Royal Adelaide golf club superintendent Mark Prosser as the company’s first Melbourne-based agronomy sales representative.
The appointment completes the national rollout of Living Turf’s specialist turf management offer, which blends technology, product, irrigation and agronomy expertise to help green spaces flourish.
“It’s really important that we can bring our offering to the great state of Victoria, which has some of the most beautiful public, sporting and community spaces in the country,” says Living Turf managing director Rob Cooper.
Australia’s climatic conditions along with more intensive use of golf and sports grounds prompted Living Turf to develop scientific and technology-led solutions, as well as Australian-made products.
“Our partnership with irrigation manufacturer Rain Bird, announced earlier this year, means we can deliver our unique mix of turf expertise with fantastic equipment to intelligently use water to keep turf thriving.” Rob Cooper says.
Living Turf has also developed Turf Forensics® a blend of artificial intelligence and modern science, to partner its MATCHplay® product range to holistically manage green spaces according to their unique climate conditions.
“I’m looking forward to introducing the Victorian market to Living Turf’s unique product and service offer and partnering with Victorian customers for long term success” says Mark Prosser.
Mark has decades of experience working on some of Australia’s finest golf courses, including the Royal Melbourne Golf Club, the Royal Adelaide Golf Club and the Commonwealth Golf Club.
Mark joins Living Turf from December 12, 2019.
As Living Turf’s first agronomy appointment in Victoria, he will join our national team of experts committed to bringing the best and most current solutions to our new customers in this State.
Victorian operations will be supported by our warehouse based in Hallem.
Living Turf national irrigation manager Mac Ross – who is also based in Victoria – says he is looking forward to having a running mate in the state.
