Sunscreen for Turf?
Adding Turfscreen to the spray tank
Spraying #2 green
This morning we applied a product called Turfscreen to our greens. This is a new product that contains zinc and titanium which are natural sunscreen products. The idea is that this product will coat the leaves of the grass plant and reduce the amount of ultraviolet light getting through while allowing penetration of the light necessary for photsynthesis. This will result in several benefits to the turf including reduced water usage and increased photosynthesis on hot, sunny days. The product also contains a green dye for enhanced colour.
