The BTME and Clubhouse event 'Harrogate Week' will be taking place from 21-25 January, featuring over two hundred exhibitors covering the whole of the groundcare industry.

At the event, Toro Irrigation is unveiling its innovative new Golf Decoder Controller (GDC) irrigation control system for golf courses. The company says it is the most powerful decoder system available for golf course irrigation.

MJ Abbot will be at the event, offering advice on golf course construction, irrigation, drainage and water management. Also at the event, French grass seed breeder, Top Green, will be introducing Greenvie, a strong creeping red fescue – ranked number one on the STRI list. This seed is now exclusively distributed to greenkeepers throughout the UK by specialist seed agent Rigby Taylor, through its dedicated Mascot range.

There's a new larger stand for Course Care this year at BTME as the range expands and the company moves forward meeting the demands of legislation.

Barenbrug is launching two new grass seed mixtures containing its unique Rhizomatous Tall Fescue (RTF). BAR 10 with RTF and BAR 30 with RTF have both been designed to provide greenkeepers and groundsmen with mixtures capable of withstanding the toughest weather conditions – from drought to waterlogging – with unrivalled recovery and superior wear tolerance.

Specialist measurement solutions company Korec will be using Harrogate Week 2007 to debut its new PC software, FastMap GreenKeeper.
