Race Tracks

dove_winning_smaller.jpgThe health of the turf on a racetrack is paramount.  The ever increasing tendency of race courses to try and have that one extra race meeting or in the Point to Point scene, the high number of runners causing the races to be split puts the surface of the course, particularly at the take offs and landings of the jumps, under immense pressure.  If the fertility of the soil is not at it's optimum then the development of a sound root mat will not happen.  Through the process of soil testing and measuring grass growth with an electronic pasture probe turf can be improved.  The pasture probe will electronically measure kgsDM/Ha giving an accurate assessment of grass growth.  This in turn coupled with correct weed spraying, topping and rolling will stimulate root development.
