Brad Revill wrote about his use of the MLSN guidelines, some of the adjustments he has made, and reports on how it is working.
"So it has been around 8 months since we started following the MLSN guidelines and we have been very happy with the results, not just from a turf performance point of view but from the financial side as well!"
That's the idea. Turf performance should be the same, or better, than with other methods, because MLSN recommendations are based on supplying the grass with all the nutrients the grass requires.
"Some of you may be asking 'What about root growth?' Well I can only tell you from my experience following the MLSN over the past 8 months is that we have seen a steady increase in root depth over the last 12 months"
I'm glad to hear that. Eli Rahz shared something similar last week:
And for cool-season turf, I'm reminded of the Poa annua roots Sue Crawford showed last autumn:
Good stuff. It's fun to see those results.
