Oilseed rape harvest 2016 – mixed messages

The winter rape harvest in Europe is now over, and yields in many regions have fallen short of expectations. In parts of Poland, Germany, France and the UK, harvests were significantly smaller than originally anticipated.

Where do the stripes on stadium turf come from?

The light and dark stripes or checks are clearly visible from the stand or on your own television screen, but where do they come from? Were different types of turf grasses used or did the groundsman paint them on?

Turf experts, and greenkeepers in particular, were frequently asked these and other questions during the UEFA EURO 2016 in France.

The mowers roll the grass in the direction of travel, creating shades of dark and light areas which are visible from a distance.”
