Christchurch International Airport has been extremely pleased with the results of AVANEX® Jackal on our airfield. Right from the start some 12 years ago, Christchurch International Airport understood the benefits of the development of such a product and hence the large investment we have put into this project. With potential birdstrikes an issue for the aviation industry across the globe, using this grass and creating a less attractive and palatable environment around airports is a significant move to reducing that risk. PGG Wrightson Turf have proven to be excellent strategic partners in this ambitious development and we are excited about the realisation of long term benefits to our safe and efficient aviation operations.
