TURF MANAGEMENT


Turf Species Evaluation

AV TURF has a long history of conducting turf species evaluation trials. Since our inception, we have conducted turf species evaluation trials either through our associations with groups, trials managed by other external groups or trials conducted on our own research plots. This long tradition continues even today with AV TURF currently conducting several turf grass species evaluation trials of both cool and warm season grasses and providing independent assessment of other industry managed trials.


Product testing:

AV TURF has an excellent reputation for providing independent advice on all aspects of turf management. Our independence means that we are well placed to provide unbiased assessments of products that are new to the turf industry. Over the years AV TURF have undertaken testing of a wide range of new products including testing the efficacy and safety of agrichemicals, new sand sources, turf protection products and turf machinery and equipment. Trials can be conducted using clients own protocol or designed to meet specific client requirements. Any trials conducted by AV TURF will always follow sound scientific principles of good trial design, including a minimum of three replicates of any treatments, an untreated control or ‘industry standard control’, randomization of treatments, statistical analysis of trial result and peer review of trial reports.


Latest technologies & effective methods

AV TURF is always looking to develop, adopt and introduce new methods and technologies or improve those currently used by the turf industry. This not only helps improve our level of service to our clients but ensures our playing surfaces continue to be some of the best in the world. Past achievements include the development and introduction of the sand carpet contamination test, which can be used to determine when a sand carpet playing surface is in need of a major renovation or complete replacement. AV TURF also plays a key role in the development of performance standards for artificial bowling green surfaces.


Laboratory

The selection of appropriate materials for construction and on-going use (e.g. topdressing) is critical to performance. AV TURF is able to analyze construction and topdressing materials through its India based laboratories.


As a standard feature, the AV TURF laboratory service includes a simple interpretation of what the results mean for the particular turf situation.
