In my world of traveling around to special venues such as golf courses, stadiums, and prestigious turf fields (polo, soccer, etc) there is a practice which takes place which seems to be ignored in the “commercial” arena. That practice is SEEDILIZING of turf. In those venues outlined above Seedling is of equal or greater importance than fertilizing.
Look very closely at the turf that you are mowing at this time. You will notice that it is trying very hard to create and produce seed. It realizes that it is vital to its genetic survival to produce viable seed and have it drop and settle to the soil where it can germinate to produce a much better plant. The mowing practices interfere with this cycle and thus creates the need to keep senior turf alive. Senior turf that doesn’t have the genetic make up to fight off disease, pest, drought, etc.
If you want to produce a better product for your customer than your competitor does…start offering seedilizing as part of your maintenance program. We have produced some excellent how to videos and have located them on our website at Agronotec.com.
