Waters Agricultural Laboratories, Inc. has long been an advocate of consistent soil and tissue testing as a method of optimizing turf management programs. In addition to providing soil inventory information and pinpoint nutrient recommendations, sampling can be invaluable as a defensible record-keeping tool with regard to environmental issues and regulations. Year to year comparisons of specific sampling areas can act as a barometer of success or failure of a turf fertility program. With GPS assisted sampling and color coded mapping, nutrient levels can be tracked and compared for any timeframe. Relying totally on visual assessment can often be the weakest link in an otherwise strong chain of turf grass management. Our hard-copy, loose leaf bound TURF FERTILITY BOOK gives the superintendent specific and detailed information displayed collectively for quick and easy reference to assist in making critical decisions.
