RVW Pugh will be holding a soil and grass preparation day in collaboration with Wynnstay Stores on Thursday 28th April at NPTC Group, Newtown College.

You will learn all about different methods of aerating, sward lifting, over seeding and fertilising your land from the likes of Opico, Vicon and Conor, to enable you to get the most from your soil resulting in the best quality grass.

The location :  Coleg Powys NPTC Group. Address: Llanidloes Rd, Newtown SY16 4HU

The purpose : To introduce and further educate people in the importance of quality soil preparation through modern practices, and the affect it has on grass quality. And also highlight the best ways to treat grass through fertiliser and muck spreading. 
Also attending and demonstrating at the event will be Vicon and Opico, with the chance to see Massey Ferguson, Fendt and Conor products at work. Vicon will be doing a working demonstration of Fertiliser spreading with a state of the art GPS system. Opico will be demonstrating their Sward lifter, soil slitter and grass harrow seeder combination. 

Mike Holloway from Churchstoke will also be in attendance with his Opico grass rejuvenator and will be welcoming questions on ploughing and sowing. 

The Conor tanker complete with trailing shoe system will be at work at the bottom of the field demonstrating modern slurry spreading techniques. Wynnstay will also have a stand at the event and will be giving advice on fertiliser and grass seed.

We look forward to seeing you there!
