In addition to golf cart and foot traffic, maintenance practices contribute to traffic stress on a golf course. Mowing, rolling, verticutting, topdressing, and aerating all wear on the turf. Tees are especially stressed by traffic, with a high concentration of divots due to limited space.
To help isolated areas recover from traffic, consider spraying Grow-In. It contains a complete nutrient analysis and helps turf recover from stress. Grow-In is formulated with a proprietary combination of carbon sources that stimulate plant biomass production, increase rooting, improve soil biological activity, and help the plant counteract abiotic stresses.
You can spray Grow-In on any area of your golf course that is suffering from traffic damage. Slowed growth, discoloration, and generally poor health are signs that a Grow-In application would be helpful. Spray as isolated or broad of an area as needs help recovering from traffic damage.
The general application rate for Grow-In is 6 to 12 ounces per 1,000 square feet. Cool-season greens applications typically require lower rates, around 3 to 6 ounces per 1,000 square feet.
