Display Trial getting started

We are looking forward to hosting a Field Day in Guelph on Saturday September 23rd, which will have a focus on the residential lawncare industry. We reached out to some suppliers and asked them to submit one of their products that a homeowner in Ontario would be able to purchase to "improve turf health" or reduce inputs. Several products were donated by industry suppliers, along with recommended application instructions, and others were purchased from "big box stores".
