Casting earthworms documents

Following the withdrawal of carbendazim at the end of August 2017, greenkeepers across the UK are coming to terms with the loss of the product, with no clear resolution in place.

As your association, we are working to raise awareness of this situation among golfers, and we have received support from many of the golf industry governing bodies and golf media.

We would encourage you to display this poster on your club noticeboard as a means of highlighting this situation to members of your golf club.

The associated leaflet provides more in-depth information and can be used to help provide background information and an authoritative voice in your discussions with your employers, committees and golfers.

The two documents have been produced by BIGGA with the assistance of leading industry professionals.

BIGGA continues to lobby with the Amenity Forum and other major industry bodies to try and ensure golf’s voice is heard by regulators.
