Results

Fabulous despite a tight 6 week schedule between end of season renovation and new season friendlies. With the inclusion of soil biology products alongside a structured nutritional and aeration program to produce the finest ever grow in achieved to date. Seven games into the season the pitch is showing no signs of wear with minimal scuffing or divots. Torsion root test showed fabulous strength of rooting achieved. Root depth down to approx. 8 inches.

Greenkeeper Comments

Marcus delighted with how well the pitch is playing. The addition of a soil biology program to compliment his nutrient and mechanical aeration programs he feels has provided an ideal balance of physics, chemistry and biology.

Delighted with how the pitch is performing with several players commenting on the quality of the playing surface. The inclusion of applying Liquid Endo Mycorrhizae along with Stimulants has undoubtedly enhanced root development.

The soil analysis provided by Symbio has given a clear understanding of the rootzones current status and nutrient levels.
