|Label for fertilizer applied to the golf course in May 2012.|
This past Monday we began making our summer fertilizer application to the golf course. We have changed our primary nitrogen source from Nitroform to Polyon this year. Nitroform has been a preferred nitrogen source for professionally maintained turf in the southern region since the 60's but it has performed inconsistently for our particular property. Polyon is a newer controlled release nitrogen source that hit the market in the 90's and has a history of providing excellent turf conditions. This spring we developed some test plots to compare the performance of these products and the Polyon source has provided superior turf quality.

We look forward to an even more beautiful green golf course this summer!
