Mark Snell, Golf Course Superintendent at Treyburn Country Club in Durham, NC discusses the success he has had using OARS PS in his greens program.
Moisture Management Solution
Soil Penetrating Surfactant with Organic Acid Redistribution System
OARS PS, Soil Penetrating Surfactant, is a combination of the university researched, field proven, and patented organic acid redistribution system (OARS) with a multi-branched penetrant chemistry. OARS PS controls soil water repellency while providing uniform soil moisture for a longer period of time.
• Removes humic coatings from hydrophobic soil particles
• Controls soil water repellency
• Provides superior soil moisture uniformity
• Increased length of activity in soil
• Improves water management efficiency
• Increases penetration of water
• Provides firm, fast surfaces
• Money back guarantee
Golf, Lawns, and Sports Turf
Apply 4 to 5 ounces per 1,000 ft² in 2 gallons of water (13 to 16 L/ha in 800 L) at 30 day intervals or as needed. After an initial 5 ounce (16 L) application, difficult to manage areas will respond best by applying 2 to 2.5 ounces per 1,000 ft² in 2 gallons of water (6 to 8 L/ha in 800 L) at 15 day intervals or as needed.
For increased surface firmness, apply 6 to 8 ounces per 1,000 ft² in 2 gallons of water (20 to 25 L/ha in 800 L) at 30 day intervals or as needed.
Irrigate with sufficient water to deliver OARS PS to the soil profile – 1/8 inch (3 mm) or more recommended.
As summer descends upon us, dialing up your moisture management becomes even more important. At times, your turf will need some supplemental watering to even out your profile. Utilizing nothing more than your current irrigation system and an AQUA-AID Solution's pellet can accomplish this.
Utilizing PBS150® with your potted and bedded plants will help gain efficiencies in your operation. Making regular applications of PBS150 will help reduce the amount of water needing to be applied to your plants, providing savings in both water and labor.
Understanding why an early season surfactant application is beneficial can best be demonstrated using a slinky.
In 2015 we evaluated the efficacy of OARS PS in providing winter hydration to putting greens. Our focus was to provide research based facts that OARS PS could provide the following for turfgrass managers:
