Soil Chemistry and Organics Can Lock up a Green – A Case History of Remediation vs. Reconstruction (1126-01)

January 28, 1-5 p.m.
Room: W311D – West Concourse
Half-Day Seminar: .35 edu pts Pricing: $140 member $210 non-member $70 student member

This seminar will illustrate the cause and effect of high Ph water application over time and the resultant effects of Ph on solid chemistry, nutrients, and soil physical properties, and how they all impact turf health.  Attendees will review a real-world, two-year case study where extreme turf loss occurred and see how the chemical problem was identified, remedial programs, and post remediation success.  

Walk away knowing how to:

  • Identify the difference between chemical and physical properties problem before experiencing turf loss
  • Learn remedial turf practices to reduce and solve soil chemistry issues      
  • Apply testing methods that can highlight progress at your facility
