New Sanding Program on Greens
We are now fully engaged in our new topdressing program on greens. The goals of the program are to make our greens consistently firmer and roll true.
There are also agronomic benefits to topdressing because the sand helps protect the crown of the plant which has shown in disease trials to reduce to the plants susceptibility certain diseases.  As I am writing this article we are finishing the 4th light topdressing on West Greens to date this year.  We completed the first light topdressing on East greens yesterday.  Below is a picture of the sand being applied to the greens.  We plan to continue this program every 2-3 weeks throughout the growing season.
