Scotts helps beat the drought

11.15am 2nd August 2006 - Management Topics

Scotts has published a Turf Stress Management Technical Update to help golf, sports and amenity turf managers develop a drought management strategy and maintain their grass to the highest standards even during these testing conditions.
The document contains a broad range of advice on factors which can affect turf quality in dry conditions, such as irrigation, use of drought tolerant grass species, mowing regimes and correct nutritional inputs to minimise stress. It also includes guidance on the use of a range of products which can help as part of a drought management strategy. These include turf growth regulator Primo MAXX, which increases root density, and wetting agent H2Pro, which reduces the need for applied irrigation.
For Scotts, Dave Steward says, “With drought now a serious issue, managers of large turf areas are under real pressure to reduce water use, and also make better use of available water sources. The technical update is a guide to help develop management practices which are geared towards creating turf that is sustainable in drought conditions. And these practices need to be a permanent part of maintenance regimes as our weather gets progressively warmer.”
