Golf Fertigation can save over $10,000 annually

 

Labor, fertilizer and chemicals are the highest management costs for a golf course and fertigation can reduce all three – saving $10,000 to over $25,000 annually.

Close interval feeding with fertigation is the most efficient way to fertilize.

Fertigation can reduce fertilizer and chemical use 50% or more, because less than 50% of any dry fertilizer ever gets to the plant. Fertigation is more efficient and can deliver up to 95% to the plant by light close interval feeding and foliar feeding.

Plant and soil health can be promoted by injecting humates, organic carbon and Probiotic biology, through fertigation to feed the soil. This will promote soil health, deeper and denser roots and over power disease pathogens with Probiotic biology, which can reduce chemical use.

Fertigation will reduce labor by reducing broadcasting and spraying fertilizer. The labor can be better used on more important tasks to improve the visual quality.

Fertigation can be turned up to increase growth before an event such as a tournament and can be reduced for general play. The superintendent has control of the golf course, the labor and the quality, while saving his budget for new mowers, irrigation upgrades or a new pump station.
