|Before and After Irrigation|
Wednesday, May 7, 2014
Today we lightly top-dressed the greens at Pasatiempo. We top-dress every 14-21 days depending on the weather and golf schedule. Light and frequent top-dressing helps reduce excess thatch. Excess thatch will prevent water infiltration, reduce air movement through the profile and create an environment favorable for several fungal diseases. Light and frequent top-dressing is one of the most important cultural practices on golf course greens. The process is completed overnight with an additional irrigation of the greens.
