Over 200 greenkeepers, golf club managers and advisors have taken part in a nationwide series of Syngenta Operation Pollinator Workshops this summer. The sessions have provided a combination of advice on how the project can help clubs to create new ecological habitats, along with practical demonstrations of novel techniques to establish and manage pollen and nectar habitats.
