iTurf - 2.jpg

iTurf is a technological triumph; a system that will measure everything that can potentially have an effect on turf growth and turf health, and then collate and present the information so that the turf manager can make the right cultural decisions.

One of the key features of the system is a 'disease prediction' programme that, having processed all the data, will alert greenkeepers and groundsman to the likelihood of disease infestation before it does any damage.iTurf - 1.jpg

The Scotts iTurf comprises a series of stations and sensors, linked to a computer, that constantly monitors air and soil temperature, solar radiation, humidity, wind speed, leaf wetness, soil moisture, rainfall etc right across the site. This is exactly the kind of detail that the ITM practitioner requires at his fingertips, making the iTurf an essential piece of equipment for all turf managers who are interested in managing their turf in an environmentally friendly way. And, of course, enjoying the cost savings that will accrue from this form of precision management.

The Scotts iTurf will cost some £2,500 to purchase and set up - make sure you visit the Scotts SALTEX stand for a demonstration and full details.
