Seminar 12: Granular vs Liquid Nutrition

PRE-BOOKING ONLY AVAILABLE FOR BIGGA MEMBERS

 seminar will develop the discussion about the relative merits of granular and liquid applied approaches to turf nutrition. It will investigate the various methods of delivering turf nutrition (foliar, liquid and granular) and evaluate the benefits of each method. Presenting data from a second year of independently assessed trial work, they aim to show the relative growth, turf colour and turf quality responses from each nutritional approach as well as any benefits in terms of root development, stress tolerance and disease mitigation. The relative efficiencies and cost benefits of delivering nutrition in different ways will be presented. The aim of this seminar is to provide attendees with robust trial data that helps them formulate fully effective and integrated fertiliser programmes.

Learning Outcomes:

• Define three nutritional approaches for fine turf

• Explain the practical differences between granular and liquid approaches to turf nutrition

• Appraise experimental design for nutritional product testing on a golf green

• Interpret supporting trial data

• Evaluate the benefits of liquid and granular nutrition for golf green turf

Presented by Henry Bechelet, Technical Sales Manager, UK and Ireland and Dr Andy Owen, International Technical Manager, ICL
