Updates from this year’s Golf Industry and Sports Turf Management Association Shows
One of the biggest concerns, still continues to be water management.
At this year’s, Golf Industry and Sports Turf Managers Association shows, one of the biggest concerns with professional turf managers still, continues to be water management. Now, we’re not necessarily talking drought, but managing soil moisture is the main concern. Compared to previous years, 2018 was a more saturated year across the country but even when the supply of water wasn’t an issue, the distribution of water in the soil profile still is.
Hydretain. Making unavailable water, available.
For many golf and turf managers, inconsistent soils moisture levels under their playing surfaces create major problems. Wet spots can lead to poor footing, strange bounces (or none), lack of rooting, inconsistent playing surfaces; all in all, bad grass. With Hydretain technology binding to the roots and not the soil, those issues can be helped. Because, when there are wet spots, there are dry spots. With Hydretain, those dry spots become a place for the excess moisture to be pulled, evening out the moisture in the soil. And that is just one of the benefits of Hydretain technology. How it works as a moisture magnet, pulling unavailable water to roots that need it. Whether it is water vapor or water droplets, making unavailable water, available.
Arborjet has been providing the best solutions for tree healthcare for nearly 20 years.
One other thing we learned, is that superintendents and grounds managers do have trees they want to protect. As a former assistant superintendent, trees were only big plants that got in the sun’s way. But trees play important roles, whether that is making sure a long hitter can’t cut the corner of a dog-leg, or protecting a neighboring property from wayward shots, or providing needed shade to spectators. Arborjet has been providing the best solutions for tree healthcare for nearly 20 years; researching, developing, and manufacturing equipment and chemistries.
