Going With The Flow
This week we are scheduled to do our semi-annual cultivation to the greens. We were scheduled to run the deep tine aerator with 5/16" tines, topdress, needle tine (1/4") and then finally fertilize with both gypsum and 10-2-5. With the weekend rain and the upcoming rain, I have decided that we will only needle tine the greens and then apply fungicide and wetting agent to help prevent fairy ring. We will have the opportunity to run the deep tine many times this season and we put out sand every two weeks so I am not terribly concerned about removing those two practices. We are still addressing the major needs the greens have right now with the needle tines and fungicide.
