SILVERMERE GOLF CLUB

Our latest visit to Silvermere Golf Club, has highlighted the benefits of using GYP-FLO to flocculate the soil The greens were suffering from an iron clogging and black layer problem at around 75mm. The application of GYP-FLO has broken up this layer and dispersed it through the profile. This action has seen roots penetrating deeper, along with a more effective movement of moisture, deep into the root-zone.

CURING BLACK LAYER AND IRON CLOGGING IN ROOT ZONES!

Having taken cores and identifying a case of iron clogging and black layer, we are now treating these greens with GYP-FLO.

The flocculating effect of GYP-FLO liquid gypsum will improve the movement of moisture and nutrients, enabling root penetration.

THE SECOND COMING!

In February Last year we treated the second green at "The Oaks" golf club in Carshalton with GYP-FLO for the first time. Phil Benn and his team were struggling to keep the second green playable, during periods of heavy rainfall. The worst area was at the back of the green, which confusingly was at the top of the slope!

In conjunction with Barry Pace of Speedcut Contractors we decided to only treat the worst area, to give us a clear comparison. Barry applied GYP-FLO at the equivalent of 40 litres per hectare by hand.

The result is a green that is now entirely playable, despite the increased rainfall we have experience lately. Phil explained that "there is no way the green would have been totally playable after this rainfall prior to GYP-FLO, let alone a pin placement at the back of the green!"

Phil has also noted a vast improvement in the quality of the grass during hot dry spells, with potential water savings to be considered!

STOWE SCHOOL SPORTS PITCH DRAINAGE. 

Following an enquiry form Kestrel contractors, we were able to assist Head Groundsman, Steve Curly and his team at this prestigious site (Stowe School, Buckinghamshire).

They had a poorly draining sports pitch area consisting of rugby and football pitches, with a high clay content root-zone. In conjunction with sand banding, GYP-FLO was sprayed onto the turf via a tractor mounted sprayer. As the pictures below show, what was a surface constantly waterlogged with minimal grass cover is now a sports pitch area to be proud of!



The profile is now a friable root-zone with increasing root penetration. Prior to the works, the clay was inhibiting both water movement and root growth! 



As the picture confirms, grass cover is now at levels you would expect from a quality sports pitch. Despite heavy rain, there was no standing water!

GYP-FLO IS HIGHLY EFFECTIVE WHEN TREATING WATERLOGGED SOILS. FLOCCULATION OF CLAY SOILS GREATLY INCREASES WATER PENETRATION, PREVENTING FLOODING AND IMPROVING PLAYABILITY!

THE BENEFITS OF CALCIUM


Sufficient calcium levels are crucial in all types of soils. Soils and root zones used in golf greens and sports pitches, supporting high performance turf grasses are no exception. Calcium is extremely beneficial in soil and in the correct form gets quickly used up by the plant. Soil improver's and calcium supplements are a vital part of turf maintenance.

Symptoms of calcium deficiency can include:

·         Compaction

·         Excessive thatch

·         Susceptibility to disease

·         Thinning of sward

·         Water logging

·         Cracking soil

·         Sodium accumulation

GYP-FLO is an extremely available form of calcium and sulphur, being 80% available to the plant. GYP-FLO is the most effective liquid gypsum on the UK market.

“Our soil samples had shown calcium levels to be very low. This can result in poor CEC’s, and lead to a lock up of nutrients and a weak cell structure. To rectify this problem I have been trying calcium supplements, with little or no success.

To ensure we get the most from the fertilisers we apply and maintain a healthy sward on our greens, our agronomist suggested we use Gypsum. We took the advice but found it very difficult to apply in its powder form. The greens were rendered almost unplayable, directly after application. 

Then we discovered GYP-FLO liquid gypsum.

The benefits were obvious within days, with improved putting surface and strength of plant leaf!"
