Surfactant Trials 2108/2019



















Research into turf quality and soil moisture levels after usage of soil wetting agents on a mixes Poa/Agrostis green

Just how much more targeted are localised weather stations vs BOM data in regard to GDD  models?

Organic/biological inputs Trial

This was carried out over 2019/2010 examining the impact on organic and biological amendments on a mixed Poa annua/creeping bentgrass green

Turf pigments and their longevity

This was carried out at Bonnie Doon G.C to examine the impact of liquid silica applications on green speed. The results were interesting with a significant increase in greens speed 10 days after application at the 7.5L rate.
