The TurfCloud team had the pleasure of attending the 22nd Annual NERTF Conference and Show held in Providence Rhode Island on March 5-7. This was the second year that TurfCloud had a huge presence on the trade shade floor in booth number 939. A 400 square foot space that was filled with friends, customers and a whole bunch of intrigued local Superintendents. The trade show has been around for 22 years which started in Boston but has been held in Providence for the last 20 years. Providence’s location in the New England area and home town feel it has become

Most of us are familiar with Thomas Edison’s definition of genius is 1 percent inspiration and 99 percent perspiration. Here’s another one you’ve probably heard a million times: Necessity is the mother of invention.
Jason VanBuskirk, who founded one of the golf industry’s rare tech startups (and whose company was recently acquired by another), bridles at the genius label. “I’ve always thought of myself as the resident geek,” he says.

BOSTON, MA, January 19th, 2017 – GreenSight Agronomics, a drone services, and agricultural intelligence provider, has secured a waiver from the Federal Aviation Administration to operate its drone system beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS). BVLOS operations allow GreenSight to control its drone systems stationed anywhere in the world remotely from its Boston command center.

Turf specialists have had to be discovered and developed; super-fine grasses have to be produced to satisfy the demand of golfers who always want something better.
