Last week, David Latshaw and myself had the opportunity to attend the Colorado Basin Golf and Water Summit held in Las Vegas. A gathering of legislators, superintendents, researchers, water district stakeholders and industry vendors focused on the fate of the Colorado River and changes that need to be made to water consumption.
In episode 3 of the Solutions4Turf Podcast, Sam Green, President of AQUA-AID Solutions sat down with Trevor Hunter of Ontario Seed Company in Canada. Many parts of Canada were hit with record heat and drought throughout 2020. Sam and Trevor discuss the successes turf managers had utilizing an AQUA-AID Solutions Moisture Management Program with PBS150, OARS HS and OARS PS Dial-In™ programs. Ensuring success for the Fall and Winter, they talk about utilizing OARS HS in your program to provide proper hydration.
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.
Golf course turfgrass managers share their successes when incorporating AQUA-AID Solutions' PBS150 into their agronomic programs.
