WETTING AGENT RESEARCH

How does OARS HS compare to other wetting agents in the field?

In order to answer this question, Vos Capelle and Aqua Aid Europe conducted a comparative wetting agent research last year. On Golf Park De Haenen in Teteringen (The Netherlands), a practical test was set up on the Par3 course, to investigate the functioning of different surfactants. The most commonly used wetting agents in The Netherlands were included in this test set-up. During the entire growing season, the performance (effectiveness), duration of action and uniformity of all products were examined and compared.

X-RAY VISION IN SPORTS GRASS

X-ray vision in sports grass; newest research method used in sports grass

Research method from space travel applied in sports turf. In a leading study led by Dr. Jim Brosnan of the University of Tennessee (USA) a research technique used in space has been applied to document and study unaffected root growth. Recently, a research has been done using this method to evaluate the effects of Aqua Aid’s Worm Power Turf on root development. Read on here.

 

 

EARLY CURATIVE FAIRY RING TRIAL WITH OARS

Trials conducted at Penn State University USA confirmed the effectiveness of pure OARS liquid against fairy rings. Significant reduction in the fairy ring severity from status 8 (Type 1 severe)  to status 1 (slight/no symptoms) in 10 days.

The Organic Acid Redistribution System is a great tool in reducing the visual effects and is a 100% biological approach to battle Fairy rings symptoms.

WATERBESPARING PBS150 BEWEZEN

Tussen 2016 en 2019 heeft Aqua Aid Europe verschillende veldtesten uitgevoerd om de waterbesparende functie van 3D surfactants in sportgrassen aan te tonen, en met name met PBS150. Penn State University heeft een aanzienlijke vermindering in watergebruik in verschillende omstandigheden aangetoond middels twee onderzoeken en zag resultaten tot wel 46% waterbesparing. Secret Valley Golf Resort op Cyprus heeft het gepatenteerde PBS150 gebruikt om watertekorten als gevolg van klimaatverandering te kunnen bestrijden eveneens met succes; een waterbesparing van 30%.
