Solutions4Turf Podcast: We Don't Putt on Petunias
In episode 2 of the Solutions4Turf Podcast, we talk with Scott Wheeler, Regional Sales Representative for First Turf and Ornamental. Scott shares his success using Worm Power Turf in his former role as head Horticulturalist at Oak Hill Country Club. Scott says it's all about the roots. Once he was able to develop a strong root system, all great benefits would follow. More robust flowering, greater yields in vegetable harvests.
The benefits of early season surfactant applications.
Understanding why an early season surfactant application is beneficial can best be demonstrated using a slinky. Looking at soils as a slinky they are loose coming out of winter and become more restricted as the season progresses due to physical traffic from maintenance equipment and play.
Early surfactant application enables you to locate chemistry deeper in the soil profile while that slinky is pulled apart. This is more difficult as the season progresses and soils become restricted. The first surfactant application pays the most dividends.
