BTME launch for organics firm


Soil fertility company Organic Soil Systems used the 2011 BTME show at Harrogate to launch its company in the UK.

Chairman Ronald Gilchrist said: “BTME is widely regarded as Europe’s leading showcase for turf and grounds care professionals, with attendance consistently in the thousands. This was exactly the right forum for us to hold the official launch of our world leading soil fertility products and technology in the UK. We have had an excellent response throughout the exhibition and look forward to developing relationships further with our new clients.”

Gilchrist says that company’s products are in use throughout Europe, including by the United Nations as part of its Education For Sustainable Development programme. MD Kenneth Turnbull said: “Through our partner company, Vermigrand, our EU certified organic biohumus is being used as a top dressing at renowned sporting venues in mainland Europe and our activated compost tea has astounded seasoned sports turf professionals with its results as both a foliar feed and soil inoculants.”
