May 2017 Sports Pitch Maintenance Diaries

Editorin Industry News

Sports covered are bowls, cricket, rugby, football, golf and tennis

Cricket, tennis and bowls are getting into full swing as the signs of summer are emerging. Despite last week's cold snap, the longer days and increasing temperatures will be ideal for grass growth.

The football and rugby union groundstaff will be focusing on those all-important renovations, whilst the all year round golf greenkeepers will be doing much of the same, only more often!

It's a busy time all round.

Leatherjackets and chafer grubs seem to prevalent this year, together with the damage caused by their predators. We focus on this particular problem in the weeds, pests and disease section of the diaries.

As ever, there is also a wealth of advice to be obtained from the Pitchcare Forum, where members can ask for and offer advice on the whole range of sports turf surfaces' issues.
