Golf Ventures and Life Soils to Host 2017 COMAND Invitational

Golf Ventures and Life Soils to Host 2017 COMAND Invitational Golf Ventures 10/31/2017 4:18:58 PM

On Tuesday, December 5, 2017, Golf Ventures and Life Soils will sponsor a day of learning with industry experts and networking on the links for golf course and sports turf professionals.   Keynote speaker Dr. Billy Crow, Landscape Nematologist at the University of Florida, will discuss his research on COMAND compost in suppressing nematodes.

Golf Ventures Sales Manager Glen Thompson said, “We want to bring together COMAND users and potential users for education and to create awareness of the product, as well as enjoy a golf outing. Golf Ventures has distributed COMAND to Florida golf courses for more than a year and a half, and our customers have seen extremely positive results.” He added the event’s host site, Longboat Key Club, is a COMAND success story, so participants can see the effects firsthand. 

COMAND is a biologically-based compost from Life Soils, developed specifically for sports turf and golf courses. As a topdressing, it has been found to increase nutrients that enhance soil structure and growth, while suppressing nematodes and other diseases. COMAND is available exclusively through Golf Ventures for the golf and sports turf industry in Florida and the Caribbean.

Attendance at the 2017 COMAND Invitational is extremely limited and for qualified guests only. Interested golf course owners and superintendents can contact the Golf Ventures territory managers for more information. Direct contact information and complete details are available at https://www.golfventures.com/comand-invitational/.
