Learning & Events
The Hills Shire Council implemented a sportsfield maintenance program utilising innovative technology to control all turf damaging insects for the season, with one application. It led to increased sportsfield durability, reduced workplace, health and safety challenges, and interventions to chemical spraying throughout the Shire. It was a win for the community, the environment, council staff, and most importantly the facility and asset users.
