Australian Turfgrass Management Journal aims to support turfgrass management professionals by providing technical information, industry news and events, profiles, critical appraisals of new products and services, and general information to help them improve their professional recognition and employment.
Since its first edition in February-March 1999, Australian Turfgrass Management has developed into the leading publication for the Australian turfgrass industry both in terms of its content and design. The journal, which is produced bi-monthly and has a print run of around 4300 each edition, is overseen by a team of AGCSA staff members including AGCSA general manager Peter Frewin, editor Brett Robinson and art director Jo Corne.
Australian Turfgrass Management includes regular features from some of the turf industry's leading experts, as well as provides a forum for the state superintendent associations and STA associations to communicate with the industry. A dedicated trade section looks at new products to hit the market each edition, while the latest in turfgrass research from around Australia and the world is regularly featured.
In recent years Australian Turfgrass Management has been recognised at both national and international level, collecting a number of awards. At the 2012 TOCA International Communications Awards (TOCA - the Turf and Ornamental Communicators Association - is a US-based association composed of editors, writers, publishers, photographers and others involved in green industry communications) Australian Turfgrass Management won a total of eight awards in the editorial, photography and design categories.
