Eric McPherson, CGCS, from Omaha Country Club talks about they have embraced RTF from Barenbrug throughout the course. It has been RTF’s ability to deal with extreme weather conditions on each end of the spectrum while demanding less inputs that earned his trust as they make changes and prepare for the 2021 U.S. Senior Open.
A major point of discussion with natural turfgrass systems is the amount of water required to irrigate. Most water overuse is due to human error or miscalculation. Understanding and following proper irrigation practices will lead to water conservation. Water conservation can also be achieved by using a drought tolerant turf, such as the ones used in the RTF Sod blend. Also by encouraging deeper rooting of turfgrass cultivars like the RTF Sod by watering deeply and infrequently.
