Introduction

indexing2Year round greens performance is pivotal to the success of any club. To achieve this requires a number of technical elements to be within desirable ranges. Golf Green Annual Health Indexing provides key data characteristics to assist course managers. These include nutrient status, incremental thatch content (%), in-situ saturated conductivity, total porosity, air- filled porosity, water-filled porosity and bulk density (compaction). ETL offer various courier (postal)-based packages for between 3-18 Greens to suit all facilities.

indexing1Sampling kits will be provided within the cost of packages. Testing packages will come with a technical report to support Course Managers in communicating with their clubs the necessary works along with benchmarking progress towards targets levels for their venues.

Four Easy Steps

STEP 1:

Complete the Contact Form below (or telephone) for ETL to arrange for your sampling kit to be sent to you, together with relevant paperwork. This will be couriered out to the client.

Organic Matter Testing #3

In this, our third article on organic matter, agronomist, Charles Henderson will cover the complex subject of its reduction. Organic matter, in general, is on the increase. Therefore, this makes the reduction of organic matter in greens, relevant to over 90% of us who are involved in managing golf (and bowling) greens, an extremely important subject. Read More.

Organic Matter Testing #2

In part two of our organic matter series, Charles Henderson discusses the relationship between moisture content and the organic matter accumulation in our greens. We will also look at how this affects some of the management decisions we make when trying to manage both moisture and organic matter content in our greens. Read full article
