THE PLAYERS Stadium: Addressing Localized Dry Areas

Water Management is a key factor in producing healthy ultra-dwarf greens in Florida. Some localized areas on the PLAYERS Stadium greens are not retaining moisture as well as the majority of the green. We are working to incorporate a soil amendment mix of Dakota Peat and Maxand to help address this issue. A hand spiker and light bristle brush was also used to help incorporate the mix into the profile.  We will continue this process as long as growth rates are optimal.
