Time for our next Dryject Application on June 13th, 2011

Next week we will perform our second and last DryJect application for the year.  This time we will be amending the soil with a mixture of 80% sand, 10% zeolite and 10% gypsum.  I have increased the amount of gypsum to help combat the buildup of sodium in our soil based on recent soil tests.  Along with the increased rate of gypsum we will also needle tine aerate the greens to a depth of 8" using a Soil Reliever.  This will promote deeper rooting of our greens and also allow for greater penetration of the amendments being injected by the DryJect machine. These cultivation practices are very beneficial to our putting green complexes while also providing excellent playing surfaces immediately afterwards. I will update this article next week once the cultivation practice is completed. 

Below is a nice video produced by Mark Patterson with Dryject of Florida from earlier this spring.
