TurfBreed has developed a suite of Varietal Marketing Brochures ranging from retail to technical data. These key resources outline variety features and care guides. Commercial and Technical Data brochures are also available for all varieties to outline variety characteristics to industry specifiers. These resources can also assist growers when applying for various tenders relating to both the commercial and local government sector.
TurfBreed’s Varietal Techncial Data Sheets have been developed by our agronomists to give an indepth analysis of the key features, morphology and performace of all varieties. Current planting details are also included along with where the varieties are available within Australia.
TurfBreed’s Commercial Brochures have been produced to explain the key characteristics of each variety to industry specifiers. Information includes tolerance levels in drought, hard wearing and shade aswell as environmental benefits, management and maintenance inputs.
The Erosion Control Australian Standard No# AS 5181: 2017 Use and installation of turf as an erosion, nutrient and sediment control measure Standard was prepared by the Standards Australia Committee for Turf.
The objective of this Standard is to provide requirements for the use and installation of turf as an erosion, nutrient and sediment control measure, and guidance on selection and disposal of turf species.
Scientific research and trials have confirmed that turf is an effective erosion, nutrient and sediment control measure, especially in construction and building situations and in other forms of development and land use (e.g. agricultural uses, mining). Turf can also provide a number of social and environmental benefits in built environments.
This Standard is intended to be used once a decision has already been made to use turf as the preferred method of erosion, nutrient and sediment control, and after due consideration has been given to the site and use characteristics of the specific project.
Throughout the Standard the expression ‘control of erosion’ is used, and in each instance this expression can be understood to also mean ‘control of erosion, control of pollution from excessive amounts of nutrients, and control of sediment transport’.
