“At our golf course in Central Illinois there are 80-year old, “push up” greens constructed of native soil. Some of them have high clay content and are surrounded by trees that compete with our bentgrass for nutrients and water. Some greens, in particular, have compacted, high-clay soils. One of the greens, we alleviated the compaction problem with core aerification Read more …
(core harvest) followed by sweeping in CarbonizPN to fill the void in the aerification holes. These soils have improved in water infiltration and percolation and nutrient holding. This is evident by the turf color and health compared to the section of the green that did not get CarbonizPN applied.
One of our greens with the clay and tree issues showed “straw brown” turf color in the spring. I thought we had lost grass as other greens were already greened up and growing healthy by this time. We mixed CarbonizPN in the sand topdressing and applied it post-core aerification at a rate of 30% CarbonizPN / 70% topdress sand. This particular green showed improved health in two weeks that lasted the season. I attributed it to the Mirimichi Green CarbonizPN application.
We plan to use Mirimichi Green to address the compaction problem on additional greens in the future and using it for divot fill in.”
