Aspire v2

SSDM was engaged (through a strategic alliance with PGGW Turf) by The Aspire Academy (Qatar) to provide a turfgrass disease analysis on several samples of bermudagrass from training fields at the academy.

A set of representative turfgrass samples were collected (following SSDM Turf Clinic protocol) and sent direct to SSDM by the Client.

SSDM provided the Client with an analysis and detailed report that identified the primary pathogen that was being expressed and also provided a set of cultural and chemical recommendations to manage the severity of the disease.
