Since its founding in 1954, Aquatrols has prided itself on being an educational leader in the science behind soil-water-plant interactions. We’re happy to say that we continue to carry on that spirit of learning in 2012. Yesterday we wrapped up an Aquatrols University session in Chicago, Illinois, two days of education centered on the importance of soil and water quality.
Our distributor representatives from across the Midwest gathered in the Windy City to learn more about the science of soil and water quality and the solutions Aquatrols has developed to combat the potential issues caused by poor irrigation water.
The event included a hands-on breakout session in which attendees worked together to assess soil and water quality reports and recommend treatments based on hypothetical course conditions. Check out the distributor reps in action:
We’d like to thank Dr. Doug Soldat from the University of Wisconsin and Rodney Tocco, Research Assistant from Michigan State University who each took time out of their busy schedules to speak to our attendees. Dr. Soldat’s presentation helped to simplify some complex information while Mr. Tocco’s findings on the potential for water savings with Revolution surely opened some eyes. We snapped a photo of Mr. Tocco presenting his findings to the group:
The event also featured talks from a number of Aquatrols team members, including Dr. Tom Boerth, Research and Development Manager; Andy Moore, Director of Sales; Joshua Yichye, Laboratory Supervisor; and Aquatrols Territory Managers Josh Ogden and Larry Lennert.
We’d like extend special thanks to Tracy Jarman, Aquatrols President and CEO for making events like this possible and Larry Lennert, who was responsible for all the planning and logistics behind this particular event. It went off without a hitch!
To our distributor reps across the country, look for more Aquatrols University sessions in the near future. In the meantime, distributors and end users who want to learn more about our soil and water quality initiative should be sure to check out our free Water Week 2012 webinars before downloading our free Guide to Assessing and Managing Turfgrass Salinity Issues.
