Korea is a key country in Asia with its stable growing economy, over 450 golf courses, hundreds of soccer fields and strong agriculture.

Michael Chaplinsky, the president of Turf Feeding Systems, just completed his third trip to Korea within the last six weeks. Chaplinsky has busy working with his new business partner John Heo, the President/Founder of Tamna International. The three trips were focused on supervising equipment installations, as well as training and sales meetings.

The new partnership between Turf and Tamna, “Turf Feeding Systems – Korea” will be focused on sustainability and water efficiency for all types of irrigated areas.

Korea’s climate is changing. The summer monsoons are coming later in the year and are shorter, thus making irrigation more important for golf, sports fields and agriculture. Turf Feeding Systems is the world leader in fertilizer injection systems, which are important solutions for water efficiency and sustainable practices.

John Heo is well positioned in Korea to open the new market. He has a strong professional background with his university degree in chemistry and has founded Tamna International, a distribution company for golf and sports field products. His leadership background is well suited for Korea as Heo is an ex- ROK (Republic of Korea) Marine officer.

Turf Feeding Systems has been marketing in Asia for over twenty years and has hundreds of installations across Asia, sold through distributors and agents.

Korea is the key stone for the Asian market. The new partnership between Turf and Tamna is a very important direction for both organizations.

This partnership brings new practices of water efficiency, sustainable efficient agronomy and fertilizer injection together to reduce costs, improve quality and crop production. The program will also use low cost domestic Korean products to reduce freight and import duty and support the Korean economy.

Turf Feeding Systems offers something new in Korea – higher quality turfgrass and crop production for less cost.

“Turf Feeding Systems – Korea” has a long term commitment to Asia and fertigation systems. In the future, each system will be manufactured in Korea for all of Asia.

Turf Feeding Systems also has created a partnership in Kazakhstan, “Global Water and Soil Solutions”, to open the Eurasian region for its products and technology, where water is such an important commodity.

Michael Chaplinsky travels the world, focused on solutions for the three most important issues – water, soil health and food production.
