Finally Rain !!!

After 7 weeks of waiting we got some good rain's !!!! Saturday evening we received a Very needed 28mm of rain and the following week looks promising. Its been a very hot February with temperatures reaching 36C and humidity never dropping below 75%. The golf course dried out especially in rough areas where there is no irrigation and on top of all the mounds.

 We are topdressing all the mounds and bad areas in the fairways with a compost mix that will help with the recovery process. We will also be applying wetting agents that will help the turf with water retention and help keep the soil wet for longer.

This video illustrates how a wetting agent helps the water penetrate the hydrophobic soil.
